Grandma Birdie's Crazy Quilt - Hand drawn by me

So I got this awesome crazy quilt that my Great-Great-Grandma Birdie made in 1970. It is super groovy and super ugly in the best way. I wanted to start quilting and thought this would make a great point of inspiration and departure. I hand drew her entire quilt with black fabric marker and then did free-motion quilting to finish it off. It was great fun, and I liked it so much, I submitted it to Uppercase magazine - and they published it in their July/Aug/Sept 2018 issue! Here are some photos of the original quilt, my version of it, and the Uppercase article.
