Yellow Page

My initials are YP, I have had experiences where people ask for last name, I answer Porcella, then first initial, I answer Y and the comment back to me is "because we need it". The letter Y obviously when spoken becomes "why". I made this quilt in response to the Why P conflict. I used Mistyfuse to fuse each panel to the batting and machine quilted each panel finally adding the border. An old favorite yellow silk blouse with 25 tiny yellow buttons done the front finally became too labor intensive to wear, buttoning each button. I cut up the shirt, wet each piece, sqeezed out the water, ironed it to maintain the wrinkles, fused this to maintain the wrinkled fabric, then used this "new fabric" for the borders.

I LOVE this piece, Yvonne! It and the piece that'll be on the catalogue cover, etc, for Houston, are just amazingly up and beyond! So fresh and joyous. Thanks for sharing them!

Love, Susan
