John made this little wall hanging for his Mother, about 20 years ago. It is an original design, called Bitterroot, one of the state winners of Quilters Newsletter's 50 state block contest, way back when. Bitterroot, of course, is Montana's state flower and you hardly ever see them; they are so rare.
So, this is hand pieced and hand quilted and "bound" with a handmade oak frame. The "binding" needed to be reglued and clamped, so he brought it back to the shop for repairs.
John made one for my Mother also, in golds; it was beautiful on her mahogany walls. We have had it back here for several years, so, for a while, the pair is of them is here for us to enjoy once again.
