I picked this pattern by Southwind Designs to make a quilt for my brother and sister in law. The look of it seemed to fit their San Antonio home. I bought the background fabric, but pulled the rest from my stash, building up from the maroon flower centers. I cut out the pieces one weekend, and put them together the following weekend. The overall effect was truly gorgeous. They were both very happy with the quilt.
My local quilt guild invited Pat Sloan to come talk in March. We were challenged at the February meeting to make one of these quilts by the time she came. I pulled charm packs and yardage from my stash, and couldn't decide which to make, so I made both. Both were quilted and bound in time for Pat's visit. The red charm pack was Hot Chilies Batiks by Island batik The blue charm pack was Clear Skies/ Fusions Bloom by Studio RK
