My quilt guild chose a theme of “surroundings” for a challenge, with a very loose interpretation that our pieces could be landscapes or anything else. I am currently surrounded by young grandchildren, so this was a no-brainer for me. They all come to my house every summer to what we call “Nonna Camp” and we spend the hot afternoons tie-dyeing everything we own. Hence the crazy colorful shirts on my little darlings in this piece.
