youth reigns supreme

Prince William’s Kichaka, 2009, in process

My 18-year old daughter, Vik, has trumped me in the quilting arena. That is, with two artist friends Max Woodring and Ana Kochetova—who created the black and white animal squares.

The recipient of the quilt will be the new baby son of Olivia Britt, an art administrator at Gage Academy of Art. Olivia leads the teen art programs at Gage—where Max, Anna and Vik have all been Teacher Assistants.

Vik plans to hand stitch the quilt with orange thread to match the orange flannel backing, except around the animals—where she’ll use black thread just inside the edge of each shape.

What a gorgeous, creative collaboration. Well done Vik! I'm sure the new mama will be thrilled with her gift.

Your daughter has a wonderful eye for color and design. From your other postings I see there is a design gene that got passed on to her. Thanks for sharing. Linda Harris
