A quilt for the RED Sofa

My new friend, Pat, had her dream house built this year. Despite many rain delays, surveying hold-ups, and the usual construction schedule modifications, her house was completed this summer and she was finally able to move in. She had been furniture shopping while the house was being built and had stored several pieces. One of the pieces she had always wanted was a red sofa—and she found it.

When I heard about the red sofa (and being a lover of all colors bold and bright), I was eager to see her new home and experience her decorating style. Her new house is classic and decorated with an eclectic flair and several unique furniture and art pieces. As a house-warming gift, I decided to make her a quilt. And for the lady who owns a red sofa, I didn't need to shy away from my stash of bold and bright fabrics (yay!).

The quilting and binding was completed this weekend and the house-warming gift delivered. Here is Pat, opening her gift while seated on her red sofa. Pat, we wish you many "Happy Hours" in your new home!




Here is the back of the quilt. I free-motion machine quilted it with loops, leaves and feather motifs on my Janome 6500. The large graphic print in lime green and chocolate is by Valorie Wells for Free Spirit.
