Fireweed for Ingrid
I started this quilt last winter at the request of my youngest daughter, Ingrid. She admired a similar quilt that I had made and asked that I make one for her. I got stuck on the buds at the top of the stem and the quilt languished for several months. Then the fireweed started blooming and I figured out how to do the tops with beads. Today is her 23rd birthday, so I spent the afternoon doing the final stitching. Happy Birthday, Ingrid!
