Every quilt has a story and Percy is no exception. Percival, Percy to friends and fans is the creation of Susan Zerbe. Susan had an idea for a pelican quilt, but was having difficulties finding the right fabric for the pelicans under feathers. She asked If I would be interested in creation a custom hand marbled color for her pelican. About that same time I was invited to bring my Trunk Show to the Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild. Susan was gracious enough to open her home to me. And, oh, by the way she collects pelicans. I walked in to the most beautiful display of Pelicans, but I walked out knowing exactly just the color she needed. Percy the Pelican is a true labor of love.
