my brush with Elizabeth Taylor....



in April 1997 an issue of LIFE magazine had an article on Elizabeth Taylor as she was about to have brain surgery to remove a brain tumor...in the cover photo she laid in her hospital bed covered with a quilt that had been donated probably by a quilt or hospital group and it contained pieces of fabric that I had designed years before to my excitement....my brush with a famous movie star and I was pretty wowed by it....the news today of her passing brought back this fun memorie of how I somewhat touched Elizabeth Taylor...

I made that quilt. I was making a baby quilt for a friend. When I learned that my grandmother was going to hospital for brain tumor surgery, I made a quilt for her too. These were my first (thus far, only) quilts. It meant a lot to me that she took the quilt to hospital with her. I wanted it to feel like a loving embrace, and hope that it did.
