Birthday Party. Made by Nancy. Named by Janet. Quilted by Mary Ellen. Finished yesterday. Could not wait for a more formal portrait (which will happen later on, I imagine). Had to get it On The Bed.
Each block was designed separately. The center square for each block came from a piece of Kaffe's "Plink" fabric with white background (apparently no longer available). The colors for the rest of the block were determined from the colors in the center motif, and arranged sequentially around, if that makes sense. For example, if the center color in the motif was orange, and the colors around that were green, purple and blue, then the four squares around the motif would be orange, the triangles green, the next squares purple, and the next triangles blue; the outer small triangles were sometimes from the next colors around the motif, sometimes just what I liked there. I used lots of fabric from scrap bags sold by Glorious Color and FQs from my stash. The sashing is grey Guinea Flowers (Guinea Flowers show up in the blocks in a couple of other colors -- it's a favorite of mine) and the outer triangles and cornerstones are shot cottons.
I loved making this quilt and can't wait to sleep under it!
