partly cloudy, a quilt.



I cannot begin to tell you how surprised and flattered I was by the outpouring of kind words I received about my first geometric triangle quilt, a quilt for harry. As a result, I was inspired to create a similar look with tones of blue. 


I have named this quilt partly cloudy because of the weather my little corner of Michigan was enduring whilst I pieced, quilted and bound this little guy. Thankfully, it has been nothing but big sunny skies for the past week.




I'd like to thank the quilting community as well as those quilt admirers (Pinterest) who have been so kind. It's lovely to be inspired to create beautiful things and share them here.  


This quilt is my entry for the 2012 Bloggers Quilt Festival, which will no doubt, bring endless hours of quilty inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping in!

What colors of gray did you use? I see two different grays. I'd love to make a similar one with the colors of the Golden Gate Bridge (orange and red) for my husband on our "cotton" anniversary :) The grays are a perfect reflection of the gray San Francisco skies. Thanks - your quilts are so perfect!
