I was very excited yesterday to make my annual trip to Countryview greenhouse with my friend, Diane. Walking into a greenhouse is like walking into paradise for me.
I was struck my the similarities between the flower colors I chose and the quilt that I just completed. This is a custom order graduation quilt and the Mom and I shopped together for the fabric.
The Mom is an artist specializing in painting and she has a wonderful eye for color. I enjoyed shopping for fabric with an artist who comes with a different yet similar perspective on color. This quilt is from Camille Roskelley's new book, "Simplify". It was fun to make!
I would like to take a moment to answer a couple of questions from some past posts. Yesterday's bag was made from fabric called, "Betty Dear" by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufmann fabrics. It is a reproduction and I actually saw the original fabric at a barn sale earlier in the month. The original was more blue and less aqua. Both are wonderful. The white flower in my last "Friday Pretties" post is Trillium. A friend of mine brought it to me from Ohio when I moved here almost eight years ago. It's a reminder of my years living there. This is the first year in all these years that the plant has produced another plant several feet away from it. I was so excited! I apologize for not answering questions more often and I will make a point to do so in the future. Blessings!
