One of the things we did while Ahren and Mary Ann are here visiting, is to celebrate Christmas. They had originally planned to be here for the holidays, but left buying their tickets a bit late. By the time they were ready to book their flights, prices were through the roof. So they decided to put off their trip to California until now.
One of their gifts from me was this Morris fabrics quilt. The fabrics are William Morris inspired reproduction fabrics designed by Barbara Brackman. They are from several of her various past collections. The pattern is "Kitchen Sink" from Kim Brackett's book "Scrap Basket Surprises". (The book has a five star rating on Amazon. com-if you don't own it, you may want to check it out). I finished the quilt last spring before I moved, and got it back from being quilted in December. It was beautifully quilted by the gracious Debbie at Prairie Queens.
I am really happy with the soothing quality of the colors, and thrilled that Ahren and Mary Ann like it as well. It is going to fly home with them and live in Dublin, Ireland!
