It's really great to make quilts for others, for obvious reasons. For me, it pushes me to using colours and combinations I might never have used for myself. I am not a lover of hot pink, although I do love the softer pinks and berries and burgundies, but this quilt? I could keep it in a heartbeat (ha ha, pun not originally intended). Put the hot pink and aqua together? Love. Period. (another pun not originally intended)
I plan to write the tutorial for this quilt. It's pretty simple in construction, and, like so many of my original designs, has a bit of an unusual construction method. Funny how I've only just lately realized that I often do look for a slightly different spin on a traditional quilt or construction method.
