A plate in Paris
Yes, Karen and Ted came all the way from California to bring me this beautiful glass plate in Paris more than two years ago!
Isn't it gorgeous?
I must say that, at first, I was surprised when they told me that it was inspired by my "Mathematics quilt".
Actually there are also some similarities between Ted's plate and my "Twelve" quilt, although he hadn't seen that quilt yet when he made the plate, (and I hadn't seen his plate when I made my quilt). Do you see the 12 little dots on his plate and the 12 cross stitches on my quilt? And then the curvy orange lines on his plate and the undulating line of beads on my quilt?
Thank you so much Ted for this beautiful gift!
