This Quilt is a pattern from Brigitte Giblin called Carmen Miranda. I fell in love with this from the beginning as it is my colors and cannot wait to finish this for our bed. Of course we all know how many I have on the go but I keep working on this every chance as it gets me there that much quicker. I see Carmen Miranda every time I look at this and have a chuckle. There are lots of my beloved fussy cut hexies, bananas, palm trees, flowers and flamingo fabric. WHAT A JOY!!!!!!
This quilt was a copy of an antique quilt out of a Carter Huock book and was done in a Marg Sampson-George workshop in 2000. The original had a cream calico background but this range of fabric had just come out and I decided to be a daredevil and be totally different to everyone else and also use bright colors for the needleturn applique. I think it turned out well and now hangs on the wall of my office at work. The staff love it. I am actually typing this at work so don't be upset if I have quoted the wrong book but I do not have it here. Have a great weekend and happy sewing.
