I love my new in-laws. I have been lucky both times around in that my in-laws have been sweet and caring. So many people aren't as blessed as I am! When we visit each other, we have a great time. I've been wanting to make a quilt for MIL (Mom-in-law), and when she and I were running around garage saling back in September, I noticed she was looking for a quilt for her guest room, a room I've been privileged to use a lot! She was looking for something with blue flowers, I noticed. I was glad that she wasn't successful, because now I knew exactly what she wanted.
It took me awhile to find the right fabric. I wanted large flowers, somewhat realistic, not cartoony. Kaffe Fassett had the right stuff.
Like her son, she said she didn't want it too busy, so I designed large blocks that would go together quickly. If you squint at it just right, the blocks look like a curling ribbon.
