What was your inspiration?
Seeing a turning twenty pattern in a little book of various colors selections. I just liked the large blocks and had this blue set of FQ's so I sewed it up in less than a week. I added red for a pop and had it quilted by machine for a professional look since it was going to be given to my husband for our 18th Anniversary wedding gift.
What are you most proud of?
I decided to put a red binding for a color pop! This was given to my husband for our 18th wedding anniversary. He loves it. Well, he loves me and likes the quilt.....lol
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure you have lots of color contrasts. It doesn't work if your fabrics are not varied in light and dark shades. Have a fun binding planned to give it a bit of a flare.
