Last week I did a snowy winter palette, and honestly I’m not sure I would ever get tired of rich neutral, wintry palettes. But this cheerful palette is for my friend Anjeanette, who doesn’t think the mid-Atlantic winters are so awesome. I got this bouquet at a farmers market in the dead of summer, and photographed it just as the sky was trying to rain. The cloudy sky made the cerise really pop and gave the greens a moody bluish cast.
I am so grateful that Pink Chalk Fabrics has granted permission for me to use their images to mock up quilt patterns! I have long admired their carefully curated collection of modern fabrics.
This quilt pattern is called Maltese Cross. If you use 15″ blocks like this, it will finish 64×85, perfect for napping on the couch or for my little girls’ beds!
