So, it looks like Pati has a definite vision as her First Quilt for her First Grandchild actually begins to take shape! “With a three-hour drive to Connecticut, it seemed like the perfect time to start Celine’s quilt,” she reported over the weekend.
And are we at all surprised by her choice of English paper pieced hexies? The mix of a traditional quilt block with bright, contemporary colors of Nancy Rink’s INTRIGUE collection will appeal to each generation of the family.
Here she’s auditioning various backgrounds for the flowers. Personally, I’m not a fan of light grounds, so I vote #1 Orange, then # 2 Pink. Or maybe alternate orange and pink ground blocks? What’s your favorite? —- lisa
