This year I volunteered to help out with the auction project in my nieces' class at OLL. Lisa [one of the moms] had a wonderful idea of having a free-form design that included flowers, birds, etc cut out by the kids. The color palette that she choose really popped and makes this a great rainy day cuddle up on the sofa kind of quilt.
The back is using Sweetwater words print and more of the same border from the front. We also included some of Aneela Hoey Little Apples print.
I quilted this one [on my new machine!] in a FMQ meandering pattern in between all of the objects. I wanted the cut pieces to standout and the background fall to the back.
Now we have to go to the auction and bid on this! I would actually really like it back - :)
