Ann writes of her quilt, "I love tackling different subjects in my pictorial quilts. I’m particularly fond of the shapes of boats — the sleek, curved hulls designed to cut effortlessly through water. Rowboats are simple, elegant crafts. Powered by hand using oars, they seem to beckon to a slower, simpler time. This boat was partly swamped, having aged and fallen into disuse. But it was also filled with memories of times past…"

I love pictorial quilts, I would like to see more on display and more in patterns. This category seems to be a rather forgotten in this day and age. I can't even seem to find magazines with ANY of these quilts on their pages. What a shame !!! When reading your write up I felt the simpler times and memories coming back to me. Extremely well done!!.
