My daughter is working part-time in my office building in the cafeteria as a cashier while she's in school and her supervisor is a wonderful gal named Heather. Heather is very good to Ariel (hey, she gave her a job!) and she's getting married in May. Of course, I have to make her a quilt as a gift from Ariel and me. So, I tasked Ariel with ferreting out favorite colors, modern or traditional, etc. so we could give her something she'd really love. We found out Heather's wedding colors are teal and purple and I immediately thought of the stash of Kate Spain's Terrain I have on my shelf.
I Googled Terrain Quilts and came across the great Cross Terrain designed by Lee from the Freshly Pieced blog on the Moda Bakeshop (by coincidence, I came across this post on Lee's blog about this quilt just the other day, so I want to give both her and the Bakeshop a shout out here!). I loved the quilt, but using all the Terrain fabrics will introduce some other colors that I'm not sure Heather would like (like orange - I happen to L.O.V.E. the orange). So, I decided to gather other purples/teals and use those to make the quilt - thereby saving my treasured Terrain for a quilt for myself (did I just say that?????) .
There are a lot of Kaffe Fassets in here and the fabrics are a glorious riot of purples & teals and I'm sure the Bride will love it! I already do.
Lilly certainly had fun on her weekend at the beach too...here she is relaxing on the couch with Dad...
