Not pink



Next up in the quilting showcase was this quilt made for my new niece Maggie. The colour palette was chosen with Lucy, my sister-in-law, in mind and the quilting pattern for Guy, who's an avid fisherman.

I loved this quilt by Hopewell Quilts, but tried a different quilting technique - based on contour lines of a map. I wanted it to look like rippling water, to have a more organic feel to contrast with the very simple graphic nature of the design.

It was cool to sew something really different for me. It also feels good to create something special for a little girl that is interesting and pretty and not pink.
