Chocolate Lime Quilt

This quilt was made from wonderful designer cotton fabrics. I designed it in Photoshop by downloading picture files of the fabrics. My inspiration for this quilt is from the Gee’s Bend rooftop quilts. I made it from start to end with my wonderful machine. It is sandwiched with thin comfy cotton batting and soft cotton flannel on the back. I always edge my quilts with satin binding because it feels like a mother’s skin.

I have been quilting since I was around 11 when my grandmother taught me. I made quilts on and off for years but when I was pregnant with my second child I made him my first official child’s quilt. His older brother, then 2, loved it so much I ended up making him one. This is when I developed my signature style of thin cotton batting, solid flannel backs, larger size for long use, and distinctive machine quilting.

My daughter is expecting in March. She fell in love with this quilt. The colors I picked out for her quilt happen to be these colors but different designs. Would you be willing to share your pattern/block sizes so I could make her one?
Thank you,

Gives me a great idea

This quilt gave me a great idea for using up scraps for my granddaughter's baby quilt. I'm just guesstimating the sizes of strips / blocks to cut and it's turning out pretty. I have a brown block in the center of each block - surrounded by yellow, orange, lime green and a little mini-dot print. Thanks for helping me come up with an idea.
