"Prairie Conversation was inspired by a quick photo I took while visiting my hometown in north central Illinois, in farm country. The wind is eternal there and I love the way it tostles the crops and roadside weeds. After I took the photo, it just seemed to me that they were in conversation, hence the title."

There is more to the story of this quilt that was juried into Houston...click here to find out everything and see more photos of the quilt.
Prairie Conversation was on display as part of the Merit Quilting Stationary exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.

I grew up in that part of the country on a farm also. This quilt brings back memories.
