I finally got my mother's quilt all finished up!
To tell the story of this quilt again, it's 100% fabric that my mother gave me. She had slowly collected fabrics with cloud and water imagery and she wanted them all in one quilt. Along with the cloud and water fabric, she also had all of these solids and I knew I was going to lean heavily on them to make this a quilt that is my voice. I actually really love a challenge like this... I like being given certain confines that I have to design within - it forces some of the decisions. It's a bit small for my bed here but it's just the right size for my mother's bed!
I wouldn't have picked these fabrics myself, but I'm really happy with the end result. I really like the way the fabrics in the pieced strip go from dark, to light, to dark again and I think the fabrics are all featured well.
And I used more clouds for the binding...
Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm headed home to New Hampshire next week for a family visit. I can't wait!! Summer in New England...there's nothing better. Except the mosquitoes!
