The quilt I am entering is one that I made for my daughter, Julia, for her graduation from High School. The quilt pattern name is "BQ" and it is designed by Debbie Bowles from Maple Island Quilts.
Julia loves the color purple, so, once I found the light lavender background, and the dark purple for the "boxes", it was fun to shop around and try to find floral and geometric prints for the squares. This makes more like a "controlled" scrappy quilt.
"BQ" would also work well for using a "Layer Cake" from a fabric line like I did when I made Julia's best friend, Meredith, one for her graduation.
Once you find a layer cake that you love, you can find a background fabric and a darker fabric that contrasts between the background and the "layer cake" squares. As you can see, this quilt pattern is very versatile and it's easy to make.
My best friend, Terry, is my machine quilter.
As you can see, she did a feather in the lavender fabric, a scroll in the dark purple, and a simple design in the floral fabrics.
Thank you for visiting my blog! Thank you, Amy, for coordinating this event and letting us share our love of quilting.
