This quilt was made for a baby boy named Leon. He was born on March 15 of this year. His mom used bright vibrant colors for the nursery.
As any student of history or Shakespeare knows, March 15 is the ides of March, the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated in the Roman Senate.
The design was inspired by the 2002 USPS stamp designed by Michael Osborne. With 3 of the letters overlapping in the words love and leon, it was an easy switch. The N is the logo that media network NBC used in the mid 70s.
“Beware the ides of March.” (Shakespeare, 1998, 1.2:103).
