Something new to hang at my house

When Debra came to visit my art quilt group last Tuesday, she brought this wonderful quilt for me. She wants to me to teach her to screen print in exchange. I think it is a super, duper deal on my part. Debra says that she got out of her box and bought these fabrics in these colors and quilted it and has never loved it. She and I were at Art Quilt Tahoe together so she knows I love these colors – well, anything with lime green. The lighter fabric is a light lime green – it doesn’t show up well in this photo. Thanks, dar!

    This is a lovely piece. I love the way that the light color looks like masking tape (such an ugly analogy, but I love the look of masking tape lines). It is a very happy piece, like it’s dancing. You both have negotiated a good deal.

    Wow! What an amazing quilt–I especially love the border! And what a great cement for a friendship. That’s a lovely, generous gift. Where are you going to hang it, Gerrie?

    NO. I like this quilt. But I would never put it up in my house. It is not colors I would live with.

    the pattern is in one of Jean Well’s Garden books… midsummer madness.

    It was a color challenge for me: make a fabulous quilt with colors I don’t care for. Successful, too. I think.

    Glad it’s found a good home.
