Lisa is in the midst of remodeling her combined living and dining room area and adding a small deck off the living room to take advantage of her great city and water views. Her new paint scheme is a very pale green and when I saw subtle colors of the grays/greens of the Hope Valley fabrics ... I knew it was perfect.
As you've probably gathered ... I haven't built out a stash of fabulous fabrics ... in part because I've been limited on cash this past year, and in part, because I really like the value that solids bring. So I've used patterns for effect, but typically they take second position ... this quilt is no exception!
I was able to pick up 9 FQs of Denise Schmydt's Hope Valley for 20% off at my local QS and I recon I will get 2 quilts out of it.
This is laying on the bed in my room ... but I like the way that it looks with green slate around the fireplace.
I'm still in love with negative space ...don't think it's a phase ... I just really like the naked quilting on an empty white canvas ...
I love how it came out and can't wait until her remodel is complete and we can sit out on the new deck with a glass of wine and her wrapped up in her new quilt with her kids!
All the best
