    This is the quilt I made for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. I'm posting another message with the pictures of my son's quilt, which is the same pattern, but oh-so-different in appearance.

    Oh, man! Both of these are such beautiful quilts! Now, I don't know which one I like best. LOL
    Which fabrics did you use for this quilt? It's just lovely.

    I saw the one you did for your son and loved it....this is just as spectacular. It's amazing how colour works so differently. Both are just excellent. Thanks for posting the pics.

    I'm so glad you all like my quilts. These are only my 5th and 6th bed-sized quilts. (I've made three wall-hangings too, but that is the extent of my quilting life.) I chose the fabrics from several different sources. I had purchased the butterfly fabric at Joann with nothing in particular in mind. Someone else on this forum posted a beautiful quilt in this pattern, and I loved it so much that I decided to make it for my daughter-in-law. I purchased the remainder of the fabrics at two different LQS's. The idea of making one for my son in a different color came later. I just thought it would be fun for them to have two such different-looking quilts in the same pattern. My daughter-in-law likes cool colors, but I was worried about this ending up looking like a baby quilt, so I focused on the greens, purples, and blues more than the pinks. (And I learned later that she doesn't like pink, so it worked out!)

    This was the first time I chose fabrics after reading about how to put colors and patterns together. I made a quilt for their wedding, but I wasn't completely happy with the fabrics I chose once it was all put together. It just seemed a tad to "busy" for my taste. So I read a book about color and that was really helpful. I'm so glad you like my choices. I value your collective opinions!

    You did a great job on both quilts. Isn't it amazing how you can change the fabrics and get a COMPLETELY different look?
