Meet one of our newest additions to the quilting tribe:
This is Hailey, one of the students in the kiddo’s classes at New Moon Textiles (I work there a couple of days a week). And she’s holding her the top to her FIRST QUILT!!
Isn’t it a wonderful explosion of happy? She even did some fussy cutting to get the right sections into the border.
Hailey and I worked together on choosing the ORANGE inner border (she came to the right person for ORANGE help, eh?) We auditioned one that was closer to the lighter ORANGE in the POW! in the upper right corner, but we decided the darker one set the center better. When I left last night Terrika (the talented, funny, and ever-so-patient kiddos’ teacher) was helping her choose some backing fabric. There was mention of perhaps a bright turquoise for the binding – this girl loves color as much as I do! I can’t wait to see it.
Bravo Hailey! Welcome to the quilt gang!!
