We're home from beautiful 95 degree Puerto Rico, just in time for rain, snow and 50 degree temperatures....
I bought this book just before I left to go away. The quilt that's on the cover is called "Big Bertha" and the original quilt is hanging in Quilting Possibilities Quilt Shop here in town. I admire it every time I go in the shop and have even emailed Karen Snyder, the designer, asking to buy it from her or if she's not interested in that, if she remembered the fabric line, I could duplicate it myself. Karen wasn't sure what she used so I looked around and just bought yardage that I thought would look nice using her pattern. It's called Neutral Territory by Red Rooster.
My colorway is not as much of a salmon colored, more of an orange, and instead of using lime green, my fabric had a nice turquoise in it. Here is one of the units. I have quite a few of the units done but I think I have about 10 more to go before I can start laying them out and assembling the top. I don't have someone in mind for it yet but it might just be something I keep for myself this time...we'll see after it's all assembled.
How's your rainy Saturday going?
