Celebration!

83″ by 95″
The seed for this quilt was planted when a couple asked me to make them a quilt for their commitment ceremony. I said I’d love to—then asked what colors they preferred. I was non-plussed by the response: “Yellow, green, and oh, yes, purple.” Fortunately the event was still a year off.

I struggled with how to combine those three colors until Lent arrived. When I realized these are the traditional Mardi Gras colors, I started to get excited about making this quilt and began collecting fabrics. Before I began construction, however, the couple broke up. I went back and forth about making the quilt, because by then I really wanted to make it. I finally went ahead with it, entered it in a contest, and won a prize!
