The fall 2011 Blogger's Quilt Festival put on by Amy's Creative Side starts , October 28, 2011. This is a great opportunity to see what other quilters are up to. Please take time to visit all the quilters and add your words of praise.
My quilt is one that I made for the birth of Etta who was born to Erin and Alex in Minnesota. We watched Alex grow up and now they have a beautiful little girl to create their family. When I asked what colors they wanted Erin came back with mustard yellow, soft green, blue, brown and orange. This seemed like an interesting combination. I found a great juvenile print with animals done in Hawaiian prints. Being that Alex is often seen in a Hawaiian shirt I knew this was the perfect border fabric for my quilt. The quilt really leans towards the boy side in colors but seeing that Alex came from a family of three boys I thought there was a good chance we would be seeing another little boy. However I did put in a little pinkish orange that didn't shout pink to me.
I hope that you enjoy seeing this interlocking pinwheel pattern and I that Etta will make good use of it. I really enjoyed making this interlocking pinwheel using my tear no more paper piecing method.
In January, 2006 my first quilt patterns to sell were released, Tropical Fish Sampler. Living in Hawaii gives a person so many beautiful images to work with that creation of arts here just seem to flow. I design mostly applique patterns but occasionally a patchwork quilt pattern works its way out to you. I hope that you enjoy the colors and the images of Hawaii that I provide for you.
