When i made this quilt Australia was in the midst of a prolonged drought. I had recently done a class on Ricky Timms Convergence quilts, so this is my twist.
I made this quilt for my son's 21st birthday. He loves down hill bike riding, the New York Beauty blocks represent the spokes of a bike wheel, the green the grassy areas, the yellow the sandy areas and the blue the beautiful sky overhead.
