In 2005 I created this quilt, Thai Dreamin’, for the Hancock Fabrics/St. Jude Hospital Quilt of Dreams contest. It was inspired by a patient’s dream to go to Thailand. Another inspiration was Japanese Manga-style comics. Can you tell that I dream in color?
The top panel is riding an elephant in Chiang Mai and the bottom panel is of flying kites in Sanam Luang (a park in Bangkok).
The deadline for this year’s Quilt of Dreams contest has already passed, but there’s no reason why you still can’t make a dream quilt. Choose a dream of your own or of someone you love and design a special dream quilt.
Or mark your calendar for the 2010 Quilt of Dreams contest because the new Quilt of Dreams fabrics and brochure will be out early next year. Plan to make and donate a Quilt of Dreams. All quilts entered are given to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patients or sold by auction. More than 15,000 quilts have already been donated and nearly $5 dollars raised by Quilt of Dreams over the past seven years.
