Gemma's "I Spy" hexagon quilt

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Going way back ....

 The above quilt is made from the "Earth and Sky" pattern.  It was the first pattern that I ever used and was likely made in 2006.  While it was the first pattern it was the third quilt I ever made.
  I made this same pattern a total four times - I got better with each quilt. 
While staying with my youngest daughter Jessica and her husband Tim this month, 
I took a picture of it.  I SID and looking at it now - wow what interesting colors I chose :)
 The paisley fabric was the focal point from which I built the colours around it.
The gold colour was very hard to find and I remember I wasn't thrilled with it, however it
doesn't look too bad after all these years.  I was in Canada when I made this quilt,
 and thus only one really good fabric store in town to shop in.
 I made this smaller quilt in 2006 too.  Jessica liked clown fish and we had found these pillow panels at Walmart in Canada cheap so I worked them into a throw-sized quilt.
It certainly is bright and cherry - a pick me up for those rainy and dreary Pacific Northwest days!
