I have been itching to show you what I made but had to wait until my quilt was received by the secret recipient.
It has now been received so I can safely show you the little quilt I made for Fi.
We were all asked to indicate the sort of things we like / dislike so our partners could make us something to suit our tastes.
- likes: florals, dots, fresh bright fabrics, 30's repro, hexagons.
- dislikes: brown, earthy tones
- color pref: reds, greens, blues, yellows, purples
I call it "Fi's Garden - A family portrait".
You see, Fi is not only a fabulous crafter, pattern maker, blogger, etc .... she is also a wife, mother to 5 delicious little people, and keeper of a large menagerie of 4 and 2 legged creatures.
Basically .... she's BUSY!!!
This little quilt, (with 3D hexagon flowers), shows a busy family of flowers, all growing together in the same sunny patch of earth. 2 big flowers looking over the 5 little ones. Each flower unique, yet each sharing at least one thing in common with the next flower. Each of the little flowers 'inheriting' at least one thing from each of the big flowers. A floral family!!
I popped a label on the back. with binding to match the quilt binding ...
