Quilts and Flowery Fabric

Cross Street Pasture

Last weekend I traveled to Winterset, IA (birthplace of John Wayne and the to the gateway to the Bridges of Madison County) to visit my mom’s (Doreen Speckmann) quilts at the Iowa Quilt Museum. Cross Street Pasture above is one of my favorites. Growing up on Cross Street in Madison, Wisconsin on a corner lot with terraces full of flowers my dad built. My mom always made sure I was sent on the annual, annual plant buying trip to make sure my dad wouldn’t come home with flats full of hot pink petunias that clashed with our red roofed house. Within the terraces we had a small herd of Woody Jackson (think Ben & Jerry’s) wooden cows tucked in to the terraces hence the quilt above. Below are more pics from the wonderful show.
