The only reason I know when this top was started is because I remember which house I was living in when I started. This top was started before my daughter was born. She is only twelve.
I think I started this quilt because I like the Asian inspired fabrics. When I began to again work on this quilt I was concerned that it would not match up well, since way back then I was a fairly new quilter. Not a new sewer, but a newer quilter. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not to bad.
I had even purchased the fabric for the back long ago. It sort of looks like bamboo leaves. I still remember when I saw it and knew right away it would be perfect. So, I am going to attempt to quilt a bamboo pattern on part of it. I practiced for a while today and watched Leah Days video on this pattern, Bamboo Forest.
I have begin a page devoted to Uncle Donald Quilts. I hope you visit it and make your own.
