On the way home from the imaging
center after my mommogram,my car made a u-turn into the parking lot of the Altamonte Springs Library. It wasn't at all what I expected. Not that I was looking for anything as wonderful as the Library in Columbia, that I so loved, but I was looking for something that was just a little more than what I found when I opened the door and entered. That said, I did find two books that I wanted to bring home and leaf through.
I did learn from a women there that that library was just the library for our small city and not THE library for the county. WHEW!!! So with driving directions I went from there to a larger library that is one of five for Seminole County. That branch is about 5 miles from my place and while still not grand was more in line with what I visualize when I think of a library. I left after an hour of browsing with three books, one of which was the Quilts of Gees Bend.
I've never gone out of my way to pick up this book before or see an exhibit of these quilts.
In order to get the maximum number of inches of design wall space I had to find a way of getting access to the light switches on the wall. So a hole cut in the polystyrene sheeting was the answer, and a flap of felt to cover the hole solved the aesthic problem.
Below is what is on my design wall at this time. It is not what the final quilt will look like since all I am doing at the moment is make square -n- square blocks. Will keep you updated on my progress.
