So, the new recipient of this quilt is Emma, the grown daughter of my uncle’s wife (of 30 years). Emma has Down Syndrome, and will love the soft and simple colors. I will be visiting Uncle Bela, Aunt Maria and cousin Emma for a couple days later this month prior to attending the Crazy Quilting International retreat in Kansas City.
The sheet that inspired it all is a floral print of pinks and lime green with bits of yellow. I think it looks very contemporary and was such a great fabric to build a color scheme around. To quilt it, I did a free motion quilted (FMQ) stipple, the first time I ever tried this. Wow, was that ever fun! It is now bound, washed and nicely puckered and soooooo soft!
So, this checks off Item #3 on my finish list.
