I was thrilled to receive a copy of the recently released book We Love Color compiled by Susanne Woods. We Love Color is a collaborative quilt book with contributions from 16 designers using Kona Solids. I was given my book by my sister Rita from Red Pepper Quilts whose quilt Lady of the Lake features in the book.
Rita made the traditional Lady of the Lake quilt with a very modern twist. She chose a green/blue palette for the larger half-square triangles and surrounded the blocks with array of colorful triangles. I love the way the colors sparkle against the white background.
While Rita usually quilts her own quilts, on this occasion I was asked to quilt for her. Rita's quilting usually involves straight lines or cross-hatching and she wanted the quilting on this quilt to be within keeping of her RPQ style. We decided on diagonal lines through the larger blocks and simple continuous curves on the surrounding smaller triangles.
For more information on the other wonderful quilts in We Love Color as well as some great give-aways, take a look at the We Love Color Blog Tour which is currently running through Robert Kaufman Fabrics. We Love Color is available now through Amazon.
