Frances

Frances Holliday Alford is an icon in the quilting world, and when she asked me, along with many others, to make her a block to celebrate her 70th birthday, I decided to make her a small portrait of herself. Hopefully she won’t mind the creative license I took in using one of her selfies from Facebook for inspiration. All of the blocks will be sewn together (that’s why this is quilted but not otherwise finished) — so I believe the final crop of this piece will be 6″ square. Hopefully I was able to capture the essence of Frances in such a small format.

Inspired by a selfie taken by Frances Alford.
