I evolved as quilter on this attempt ... I struggled with the layout at first. But what I really struggled with was the color combination. I had to learn to step above the color choices and still see that I could make a lovely product that my cousin could enjoy ... as these were the colors that she wanted.
I'm not sure who makes the prints that I used on the front. The back is Hope Valley Prarie Rose with a Kaufman Kona "Sweet Pea" and the binding is Hope Valley Cactus Calico. I normally shy away from the current trend in fabrics, simply because they are too expensive for my budget. But I had a $20 volume credit at my LQS, so I splurged.
After washing the quilt is 60" x 58" and quilted in a meandering pattern. Until I get a new machine ... that's my quilting method of choice as I don't have dual feed capabilities.
I hope that Laura is happy with it ... and I'm now ready to move on to something that's a little more my style ...
All the best
