Hannah and Morgan have been good friends for a number of years. Morgan is a kindred spirit; she has a younger brother close in age to Max, and a beautiful little sister from China. Morgan and Hannah have the same interests, the same taste, the same sense of humor, and a common faith. It is a treasured friendship, for sure.
When I finished making my nephew's orange and white quilt I had several scraps left. I told my Mom I was thinking about pairing them with an aqua fabric and she squished up her nose. Now, I never went through rebellion in my teenage years, but I'm such a quilting rebel. :-) I'm working through all those lost opportunities from my youth - ha! It only takes being told something won't work to convince me to try it anyways, so I was determined to pair my bright orange with soft aqua. (I guess I'll never outgrow the strong need to prove my mother wrong. If only because I can hardly ever seem to pull it off!!)
I completely love the colors! (Mom does too. I totally knew it.)
As this quilt was coming together, Hannah and I knew without a doubt that it had to be for Morgan. The bright colors, contemporary design, and overall funky feel of this quilt completely match her vibrant personality. I learned a new skill while machine quilting this one. I did a freeform pattern of big, loopy flowers, and it was tons of fun. I embroidered over one of the flowers on the back of the quilt to create a label.
