A few years ago, Jenny made me this beautiful quilt.
The big blocks have handmade redwork.
Jenny gave me the pattern, "Turning Twenty...Again." I used it to make this quilt.
I had purchased the backing fabric a few years ago because I liked all the happy, bright colors. I was at a loss as to what colors I should use on the front. I had asked for help at a quilt shop and purchased fat quarters in medium tones of blue, gold and green. I just couldn't work with the quiet colors. I followed Jenny's advice and used her method of picking fabrics for the top.... she chooses colors from the fabric she uses on the back. I liked being able to pick brighter colors for the front. The quilt may be a little to bright for some tastes but it does seem cheerful.
The quilt pattern is somewhat retro, large flowers and swirls.
