I found out that Jean will be turning 75 in September and her favourite colour is orange. So I decided that I would also make her a quilt based on one of the patterns from the book Batik Gems by Laurie Shifrin. The pattern is called Vertical Vision and in her book she did it up in various tones of purple.
So here are my choices for this quilt. The orange fabric with the flowers will be the border fabric. The selection of blues to greens will be the small accent blocks along the border as well as the small accent strips throughout the main body of the quilt.
Then here are the various orange fabrics that I found to go with the border fabric. Many are batiks, but a few are not.
So I guess I'm going to be busy for the next couple of months making 2 quilts for 2 - 75th birthdays in September.
