I made this quilt based on Oh, Fransson's blocks from her Paintbox Quiltalong. It is a graduation gift for a sweet girl that is a friend of my sons. I had one of my sons ask around to find out her favorite colors and he came back with purple, black and silver.
My sweet friend and my daughter's bff, Melanie, took pictures for me when we were at the park on Saturday, but apparently there is such a thing as too much natural light because the pictures she took of the front of the quilt looked a bit washed out, but the back looked great. I loved this big swirly black and grey for the back. The fabrics screamed for swirly quilting, but I haven't done much quilting besides straight quilting and I was terrified to try swirly on this one. I mean, literally nightmares about trying to quilt it and then having to tear out the quilting because it was so bad! So, Kirsten came to the rescue and quilted it for me and she did such a terrific job, don't you think?
