100 % quilting cotton in prints and batiks
What was your inspiration?
The inspiration for this quilt was the sparkling personality of my beautiful little granddaughter, Anna-Claire (featured in the photo). Always sweet, with a bright smile and a love for the outdoors, she is like a ray of sunshine.
What are you most proud of?
I was most proud that the finished product exceeded my initial vision of this quilt. The border was not planned in the original design, and I was surprised that I was able to allow the quilt itself to tell me what the border should be. I am usually very structured, which can sometimes inhibit my creative processes. Perhaps because I allowed Anna-Claire to help with the quilt, I was more relaxed and her presence added a sense of play to the process.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
RELAX and enjoy the process. Allow the fabrics to speak to you.
