Renaissance Baby Quilt

Here it is.  The baby quilt that I presented to Lynne last week, along with a smaller version for little sister.  Mother and daughter both have quilts to wrap up their babies in.  There is something so gratifying in giving a handmade quilt as a gift, when nobody does handmade anymore.

The design is my Renaissance quilt from Color Mastery.  Deceptively simple to put together, but oh so sophisticated in its design.  Fibonacci proportions for the strips.  Repetition in the fabrics and blocks gives the quilt unity.  Three bears rule of color for just the right color hierarchy.  And I manipulated the three elements of color just right to get the perfect marriage of colors.

And the best part?  All the fabrics came from my stash.  The backing was over 10 years old, and still as beautiful today (I also used it as the binding).  Knowing how to build a color-rich stash means your fabrics will be as useful 10 years from now as they were the day you bought them.

You can still make beautiful quilts, with stunning color, even when the economy has us all cutting back.  Yes, the stock market is volatile, but my fabric stash is solid as a rock.
