I want to document for myself (and you) the baby quilt for Genevieve — my great-niece by marriage — before sending it off in the mail to Colorado.
Genevieve's nursery is lime green and purple. I wanted those colors as highlights, with gray and white as neutrals.
Inspiration for the design came from Josef Albers' "Homage to the Square." (nice instructional video about his color theory here)
|This is the closest to true colors I've been able to photograph.|
The purple usually appears too blue.
The quilt measures 38" x 48"
|I stitched straight lines going in both directions every 1 1/4".|
|I just love all these old fabrics!|
I send this quilt to Genevieve ("Evie" — long E), with a little salt and pepper, dancing and music, stitches from great grandma, and a heart full of love.
