A Season of Chaos to: Whatever!!!!

A Season of Chaos to : Whatever!!!! by Charlotte Lindsey

The featured quilt of the week in the March 13, 2011 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called A Season of Chaos To:  WHATEVER !!!!  It was created by Charlotte Lindsey.

Charlotte’s quilt was her entry for the annual Tri-Guild Challenge which is held each January between three or more quilt guilds in the metro area. The challenge this year was to make a self-portrait quilt. 

Charlotte Lindsey

Charlotte says the past year has been a challenging year for her, but she is determined not to let anything get her down. She is determined to re-invent herself to make sure she continues to enjoy life. On the back of her quilt, she included the phrase “A new attitude stepping out of the zone.” Looking at her quilt and looking at the sweet woman below, I would definitely agree she is stepping out of the zone!

Beautiful Leaves

Beautiful Leaves by Charlotte Lindsey

This week our goal is to get you out of the house to experience nature’s most glorious time of the year. It is leaf season, and you should not miss it. If you just can’t get out of the house you can experience leaf season through  the featured quilt of the week in the October 17, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt is called Beautiful Leaves. It was created by Charlotte Lindsey.

Charlotte graciously loaned this quilt to the Bowden Senior Multi-Purpose Center in East Point as part of the Clara Ford Foundation Fall Tour of Quilts. Those seniors who are not able to get out to experience the live version of fall foliage will be able to experience Charlotte’s version.

Beautiful Leaves should be experienced slowly and up close. Charlotte carefully chose the fabric for each leaf making sure the full palette of nature’s glory is represented. The fabric choices can only be described as luscious.

 Charlotte documented this quilt with a label that says: “Beautiful Leaves, a handiwork of God and a gift for all mankind.” Charlotte’s quilt is also a gift.

Happy 4th of July!
