You know that I must be blog brain-dead again as I'm showing you another one of my quilts!! This particular quilt is entitled "Park Lane Vista" and was made in 1991-1992. It was named after a Denver hotel of my youth called "The Park Lane". My Mother and I stayed there often on our shopping trips to the big city. It had a restaurant on the top floor where at dusk you could see the entire city and it's lights with the stars shining down. I designed this quilt to reflect that wonderful memory of time spent with my Mother.First, I made the 113 four-inch star blocks from scrap fabric from my stash. Then, I went in search for a striped fabric for the connecting blocks. At the Houston Quilt Festival in 1991, I spied the perfect fabric from a distance at one of the fabric vendors. When I got up close, I found that the fabric was from Japan and was $15 a yard. That's not an unusual price today but in 1991 that was expensive. I bit the bullet and bought the three yards I needed. I've never regretted the purchase, as it was just what I envisioned.
