Show Me the Road to Timbuktu....a pictorial quilt
Show me the road to Timbuktu,
Take my hand and let us go
Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
This pictorial quilt just grabbed me as I roamed the exhibits of the Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis this year.
It just exudes joyous-ness!
I don't know if it's the colors, the artwork, whatever it is, this art quilt just pulled me in.
Bodil Gardner, the quilt artist, describes this quilt as...
"...Two young people embarking on one of life's great adventures. Optimistic, perhaps a little apprehensive of what we may think or say, of what will happen. We wish them good luck and happiness!"
In searching out Bodil to ask for permission to display this quilt (which she graciously gave) I happened upon her website in Denmark.
If you like this quilt, you're in for a treat.
Her website Bodil's Patchwork Pictures
is a veritable feast for the eyes. Check out her "Technique" page...there's another fabulous quilt tucked away there, too!
Thank you, Bodil, for sharing!
If you've enjoyed this quilt...
Do let the quilter know!
