Because I Can't Say No
I have a hard time saying no to my mother. This is a throw sized quilt that I made for her to give as a gift. She originally wanted me to do a log cabin--but I talked her down. Too much cutting! This is another Sunshine and Shadow, which makes 6 (one is a top that still needs quilting!). Made with a strip piecing method, I think it gives a lot of look without too much effort, which is why it's great for a gift type quilt. I love the strong colors, and if you've followed my work, you know I love sharp contrast. I think that my mom really likes color the way I do as well. This may be lingering at her place before it goes to its inteded home in California. I have to do another quilt gift for my mom! This time, I may do a little Blooming Nine Patch to make things a little more interesting.
