Early this morning I ventured out while the leaves still sparkled with frost and the sun had yet to sweep away the morning mist.
At last a sunny day to photograph my latest make, Ruby Twinkle quilt top!
I'm making a pair of sawtooth star twin bed quilts for Aria and Liam's bunk bed. These are super-easy to sew 12" finished blocks (tutorial here), so the quilt top comes together pretty fast. This one is all in Kona Ruby red background. Liam's will be on Kona Storm, a vivid navy blue.
It's just my luck that they both passionately want a red, white and blue room. Not sure how they got to be quite so patriotic... I've chosen this traditional pattern and layout as a nod to the New England aesthetic, while keeping it fresh with happy modern fabrics!
Aria's favorite blue is a really bright cobalt, like the pearl bracelet print near center of this quilt. That color is not too common in modern fabrics, and I prefer to use a variety of shades for depth, so I've mixed in lots of other blues as well.
My most favorite and her least favorite print is the Umbrella Prints hearts there at the corner. She says it's orange. Ah well, can't always win!
I'm feeling a bit quilt-deprived lately. Must make more quilts! More quilts for this space. Quilts, quilts!
p.s. Happy New Year!
