Color, Color, Color!

My sisters and I recently divided up the quilts and afghans my mother has made over the years. She still has a beautiful one that she embroidered and hand-quilted on her bed at her assisted living. She made embroidered quilts and pieced quilts. All her quilts were hand-quilted. My favorite has always been her Grandmother's Fan quilt with royal blue settings. The base of the fans are bright yellow and the fan pieces are scraps. It is now mine! I also got a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.

For the last two days I have been cutting some bright colored fabrics myself. The predominate colors are lime greens, oranges, pinks, purples, and turquoises. This will be made using Bonnie K. Hunter's Crayon Box quilt pattern. The pattern is free. This is a quilt for a very special person. Here are some of the pieces I have.

Below are a few of the blocks I have pieced. The center block depicts something about the recipient's life. Hope she gets the meaning of each block. This is a very whimsical quilt.
