August, 2013 (published later because the design is a surprise)
A close friend got married this summer, one who really understands what goes in to making handmade items like quilts. I decided to make a queen size quilt with two matching shams for her and her new husband. I love giving a quilt as a gift when the recipient is someone who really appreciates what it is.
The bride's favorite color is teal, so I used that as my starting point. I ordered a fat quarter bundle in a range of blues, and paired it with a black background and some teal dots for the backing.
Here are some in-progress shots:
And the final layout...http://shop.psiquilt.com/product/impromptu-quilt-pattern-108-pdf-version) and I love the geometric design and the colors I chose on the black background.
Today I am piecing the quilt back, and then I will be ready to baste, quilt, and bind.
