Hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July. We spent the day and night with friends in St. Augustine. It was great and the fireworks downtown were wonderful. I have been busy on two quilts. One is a baby quilt for a friends granddaughter. They like butterflies and I found a really cute fabric by Susybee for Hamil Textiles. I designed a simple quilt that would accentuate the fabric but also have a little whimsy to it with a pin wheel block. I gave the client the choice between having all the pin wheels the same color and they would pick the color or mixing it up. She chose mixing up the pin wheels. I am so glad they did, I love all the different colors. I picked a dark and a light of each color on the quilt and then mixed them up in the quilt. The mom doesn’t like purple but likes turquoise so I made sure the purple/blue color in the quilt went more to the blue in the pin wheels and made the inner border turquoise.I love working with my clients to give them the quilts they want for their loved ones. Most of my quilts are memory quilts but sometimes I get to make quilts that will be the foundation of many memories to come. Those are really special too.
Are you working on anything this summer or are you taking a break? I love seeing all the things people do so please share your projects with us so we can be inspired.
Have a great week. Trish
