This is the quilt I have been working on and had some advice from "Give me your 2 cents" I named it Turkish Delight, to make a long story shorter. Several years ago a friend and I took a trip to Istanbul, Turkey and exhibited a quilt in a show there, as well as taught a class. We had a wonderful time and the quilting group was so hospitible that I have stayed in touch with many of them. Turkish delight is a candy. It is made from fruit flavors and come in the most delightful colors then dusted with powered sugar. Well, this quilt is made with hand dyed fabrics that remind me of the colors in Turkish Delights. Also, it is a tribute to those wonderful ladies that acted as hostesses during our trip and a special thank you to Berrin Yazici who we stayed with.
