Every quilt artist approaches a new piece in a method that best suits them personally.  Some map out the entire design before ever cutting into fabric.  Others have an idea, but just dive in letting the quilt speak to them as they go along. No matter what the technique, being able to follow along during the entire process as a spectator is a rare treat.    

Several months ago we shared with you the story behind the creation of this quilt named "Grandmother's Legacy" here.  During the next few weeks we will bring you four slide show installments that follow along during the creation of this quilt whose idea began with a black and white photo of Alex Anderson at her grandmother's knee seen at the Silver Star Awards in Houston last fall.

In Part I we begin with a beautiful piece of batik fabric that Gail Thomas saw as the perfect canvas for painting this sweet domestic scene.  Using layer upon layer of Angel paint, Gail brings depth and life to the three individuals in the photograph.
