The quilt is intended for a friend of mine who is facing serious health issues. Me and my husband were really touched by his situation. Just like us, he has a family with two young children. I wanted to make something special for them to say we care and to bring some comfort. So, I decided to make him a quilt. I could have done one by my-self. But, I decided to ask help from people in do. Good Stitches. To me, it makes it even more special. It shows that they are people around to bring support even if it’s only in good thoughts. I’m really amaze by all the generosity I have seen so far in do. Good Stitches and in the online quilting community in general. Thanks again to everyone who offered their help.
When I asked for some blocks, I requested shades of blue, green, aqua with
neutral (solid color) fabrics for the background piece. My choice of colors was inspired by this quilt by Alex at Teaginny Designs. I feel it soothing and this is just what you need when you’re going through tough times.
I originally had planned doing a 60″ x 72″ quilt made from of 30 blocks on the front. But then I reviewed my plan and decided to order some Kona in Sage to make some borders and some Kona in Pond for the back panel. These color make think of the sea and what is more soothing than the ocean?
