This quilt was made for a small child with a turquoise and orange room. I found this "circus" fabric which contained the perfect colors. It was basically a horizontal stripe, which I could have "fussy-cut," but didn't. Then I used several different oranges and turquoises for the sashing. It was a fun quilt and the recipient and his parents were very happy with it!
I believe, at the time, I was still stippling every quilt I made. I wanted to try other quilting patterns but hadn't yet found the courage! :)
Remember the mustard field? My DH and I were driving by it again on Sunday and I was able to get even closer down into the field. It just gets more and more beautiful as it continues to grow. There were lots of bees which I know is a good thing, but it stopped me from getting an even closer shot.
