So, be patient as I get this site up and running. I thought I would start by showing a quilt that was so outside my comfort level that it ended up being a real gem! I first saw the pattern in the Summer 06 edition of Quilts and More. It is called "Calypso". They showed it with a more traditional fabric scheme. I thought that it would be a good opportunity for me to try out some of those loud and crazy prints that you see in the fabric store. You know, the one's you can't make into clothing, or put anywhere in your house because they don't match anything?
So here it is. A crazy floral print and then 6 tonals that pull the colors from the floral. It was so bright and cheery. I thought it would make a great cuddle quilt so I used a beige flannel for backing, and a simple hand quilted design to keep the eyes focus on the prints.
