On my design wall....is a quilt for my Aunt Grier. I wanted to make her a throw quilt for her solid colored couch to match the chairs in the room. Below is the fabric on her chairs, I got a sample from Calico Corners. I used the sample to match a color scheme. She has no idea I have her chair fabric! She will be surprised.
Aunt Grier, Aunt Beth and myself
I have these pictures from Thanksgiving, see the chairs?
I just love this solid gray couch, I am hoping the quilt
will go on the couch.
She lives on the water in Annapolis Maryland so my thoughts were to make her a Nautical quilt. I came up with these scrappy triangles because I thought it I could make it look like sails.
Her backyard view
I have added some rope like embellishments on top of some of the sails. It is actually shoe laces!
My threads - my plan is to do some embellishing with this thread and then to hand quilt it.
Thanks to a tutorial from FITF: scrappy triangles - a nautical quilt. She did a great job helping me come up with the idea. Go here to see her tutorial!
I still have more work to do, but thought I would show you my progress. Have a great week everyone!
