What is it about green and pink together that I just love ? Ever since I saw this quilt from Taryn's antique quilt collection I knew I wanted to make it. I emailed Taryn and asked her if she would mind if I made a quilt inspired by her antique quilt. I was thrilled she said YES!
here is the start of mine! I really should be working on a few other projects I have started but well....Pink and Green and Nine patches I just had to start it! I know this quilt will never become a ufo, it feels good to be so inspired again by an antique quilt.
I am waiting on some black fabrics I ordered to use for the blades of the quilt Victorian Hexagon quilt along with Sujata and Barbara Brackman, I decided I wanted to go bold and use the black vs the grey I showed in a previous post.
Have you been following Donna's blog Quilting on the Mon...what a collection of antique quilts she has. The past few are amazing, I am still dreaming of the turkey red quilt a few posts back, the stars and then the blue and white quilt....
Did you see Liz's finished red and white quilt???? I really think simple blocks can shine in a quilt, just look at this one of hers, so graphic. I can't wait to see how she quilts it.
