African Starry Night Is My First Quilt to Be Licensed

African Starry Night, 63 x 79 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2006. Purchased by the United States Embassy in Ecuador

It is not unusual for people to love my quilts. There is just something about touching the fabric, remembering your grandmother, and reflecting on the love and patience that went into making it that makes it impossible not to love a quilt. However, it is quite a different kind of love that makes a person from Delaware call me in Georgia to seek permission to copy a photo of one of my quilts so that she can put it in the room of a new baby. That is what happened to African Starry Night.

Those who follow this blog know that African Starry Night was purchased by the United States Embassy in Ecuador.  As I gladly granted permission for the picture to be copied, I wished I had taken the time to get better pictures of it for others to use. Now it is too late. 😦

Maybe my in-house photographer India will be more vigilant in the future about getting great pictures of her Mom’s quilts. My pictures taken with my IPhone are never great.

Since I did not have a great picture, I put a nice hand written note in the mail to the new parents. Small things make me happy. Sharing a picture of one of my quilts is BIG! 🙂
