I am so glad that I took my sketchbook to the trip to San Diego, and as well I took a lot of photographs that now I am just delighted to go though again. And they remind me that hey, San Diego is just couple hours away from Las Vegas! I definitely am planning my next trip.
If you not following me on Instagram (my user name is paisleyfarm), you are missing on a lot of photographs
I brought back form San Diego!
My 3 day trip was wonderful as always and as always, the ocean, air, road,
colors make me feel like a new person.
I was very lucky to have the nicest customer, T., who gave me the complete freedom to create this quilt with the fabric choices and the colors that I proposed.
Thank you, T!
Her only wish was to add an owl somewhere in the design.
Such a nice idea! I love how the owl looks hovering above the main house!
It started out as an idea in a drawing based on this older and much smaller quilt, that I made last year.
Because I liked how the brown background make all the colors pop, I decided to just go with the same color combination to make a bright and cozy quilt.
I think chocolate brown background is VERY cozy!
I used lots of different prints and batiks, like I did on the smaller quilt.
It grew and grew..
...then I added some ivies and leaves...
...and my cat was curious about it...
