The Anchorage Modern Quilt Guild challenged the members to enter a quilt for the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase.
During the long winter in Alaska, my blue bicycle with green wheels sits in the garage unused. Every time I saw my bike, I’d wish for spring to come soon. It finally occurred to me that I could bring my bike inside by making it the star of simple quilt.
Raw edge appliquÃ© allowed the bike design to have a frayed or ‘rough around the edges’ reminding me how my actual bike looks when we return from riding adventure about town. I added the basket of flowers as a wish for spring to come a bit sooner.
