First of all, I have to say that Chris is one of my favorite artists of all time. Her paintings are just beautiful and oftentimes depict our local Spokane area. I just about died when I saw a piece she did on downtown Spokane from quite a few years ago - complete with lots of great cars in the parking lot. It's my favorite so far. But she is truly amazing at everything she does. And as you'll see, she loves quilting. Here are some shots from my visit yesterday. (And you can see one of her paintings in the background in the photo below).
A Collection of rescued quilts in an old crib and a stack of doll quilts in a doll crib on the right.
She's even used the doll quilts as placemats from time to time.
Oh my gosh - I love this.....It's hard to read, but what she does with the unfinished quilts she rescues and completes is that she signs each one (in stitch) as follows:
Ann Onymous - Pieced (get it?)
C.E. Druffel-Lynch - quilted (her name)
2008 (year of completion)
And as I've mentioned before, Chris and her sisters hold a couple of sales each year in Spokane. Tons of vintage, antique and homemade items. We'll be sure to let you know when the next one is and will share pictures of Carrie's house and the last sale we went to. Can you even stand it?!
