Sew Sisters Exchange Quilt

Last year when I started quilting, I was fortunate enough to be invited to join a quilt group, the Sew Sisters.  We meet regularly, and we also have an annual quilt exchange.  Each person picks a focal fabric, and someone else creates a quilt based on that fabric for them (this is all in secret).  I drew Dani, and these are the fabrics she had chosen, and I worked with:

Fabric

Dani’s fabrics were beautiful, but posed a bit of a challenge for me as I tend toward brighter, pinky colors.  I chose to go the modern route, and this is the quilt I created for Dani.  The big “reveal” is today, I hope she likes her quilt…

My friend Ellie thought it needed a pop of color, so she generously gifted me the coral colored fabric. And thanks again to dear younger son for holding up the quilt – I knew these kids would come in handy one day :).

 

Oh, and I had enough fabric left, so I made Dani a matching giant pin cushion:

  1. That coral does add the perfect pop of color. love the pin cushion too. How fun to have quilting sisters. My mom meets weekly with her quilting friends. I’m amazed how much she accomplishes when she meets regularly.

  2. I saw your quilts (the one you made and the one you received) on FB. They both are beautiful. Your quilt has a Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it.
