St. George's Trophy

Let me say that I first saw this quilt "St. George's Trophy" on another blog, I, as did she, fell in love with it. The quiltmaker and quilter is Helen Baczynski. I think it is one of the most inovative quilts I have ever seen. I liked it enough to ask Helen if I could make a similar one. She gave me permission and even told me exactly how she made hers! She is a very nice person and quite generous too. While I was at the LQS yesterday, I bought some batiks for the "scales". You can see in the picture here mine will be much more purple. That's because the person I will be making it for is really a purple person! And her dragon self *Sparkle* is purple. I wonder which knight will have this trophy??hmmmm, I'll have to think about this!

Wow, this quilt is pretty wild. Hard to tell how bit it is. Was it large or small?

I can't wait to see how you interpret this interesting quilt.

Thanks for visiting my blog--I haven't been able to get around to visiting all the doll quilt swappers blogs yet--there are so many of us.

I am in Lansing--do you think we're the only two Michigan quilters in the swap?
