This is the birthday present I made for Spry. It was rather belated, as is this post. (I believe I finished the project around her birthday but then I didn’t see her for weeks afterward.)
I used the “Elegance” pattern created by Kay M. Capps Cross and printed in “Sensational and Small Quilts.” The original design is in black and white prints with pops of pink. I went a completely different direction. I used pinks and yellows, with a touch of blue. I was sort of aiming for Spry’s wedding color pattern (ish). For the back I used a panel from part of a fabric collection that I’d also used in the front. I can’t remember the name of the fabric collection – something about cherry blossoms.
I quilted on both sides of the seam attaching the outer border to the inner border using pink thread. I also used pink thread to quilt each fan section. I quilted along the inside edge of each piece. Pictures below:
