Day 25 - of 100 days of Quilts

Our design - but sadly, not our quilt -retreat '07

This quilt does not belong to us, however it is our design. This lovely quilt belongs to Joan, one of our retreat students. It was an exclusive design for our retreat students (that is one of the perks!) In fall of 2007 we offered this quilt in a pieced version as well as the applique version...this is the applique. The center is paper pieced, which is something that we really like. Of course Joan added her special touch by adding extra color as well as the butterflies - love all those special touches that make this hers! We had made kits for our students and they got to choose between four different colorways. This quilt started out as the black, Ivory and teal kit and the splashes of color are awesome.
The fabrics in the quilt were from our Bohemain Rhapsody collection. (this was the "Ocean" color palette)
So there you have it...Even if you by a quilt kit, you can make it uniquely yours by adding or changing the colors. Think outside of the box and enjoy the ride!
