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.

My 3 day trip was wonderful as always and as always, the ocean, air, road, 
colors make me feel like a new person.

First 2014 finished quilt

T's House quilt

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!

T's House quilt

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.


I made star and house blocks, that I have been showing here on the blog...

New quit in progress...

I am so happy to know that this quilt will become a part of somebody's life, will bring warmth and coziness
as all quilts are meant.
