This is the label I made for the back of the quilt...sewn on by hand.
Some of these photos are not on the front: bottom row: Erika with crocheted hat and red flower was a gift from me several Christmas' ago; next photo is Erika wearing my deceased mom's jacket I gave her, she is getting mail from her mail box. We used to write weekly to each other for years! Last photo in that row, Erika with DH last summer. Top row 2nd photo is DH's sister! and second to last photo you'll recognize her son playing in park last summer when we were there (same photo of him hanging from tree on quilt front center! w/o play equipment. Our nephew is a senior at University of MN in Drama Dept.) On Monday I boxed it up and sent it off to wait for us to arrive on Xmas Eve. Sort of mailed it to myself at my SIL's house in MN. Since you saw it last beads were sewn to the center of the sun flower, free motion top stitched leaves were sewn over all the background rust fabric, and Cris' duck photos were sewn on the bottom left side.
I emailed Suki's suggestion to my SIL asking that the quilt go to Erika first and if possible stay with her in her room in the nursing home as long as possible. Then Karen can take it home to her den. She agreed it was a good idea. ;-)
Needless to say, I am looking forward to giving it to Erika on Christmas Eve and seeing her reaction to "her world".
Special thanks to Cris, Artist in Oregon for use of her photos of ducks, birds and squirrels. It's added so much to the quilt in making it Erika's World.
