Here’s a question for you. Maybe 2 questions . . maybe 3 . . you know how I am! 🙂 I’ve asked this question on the blog before but I love reading your answers (and I don’t really have anything else interesting to talk about today). You don’t want to hear me complain about having to wake up at daylight and go outside in the 17° to take care of the chickens, do you?
Here’s my question: If you’re making a quilt for a gift for someone, do you make it to match their decor? Do you make it themed to something they like? Do you make it however you want it to be?
This is not if you’re commissioned to make a quilt or they ask you to make a quilt . . then you make it as instructed. This is just . . say you decide to make a quilt for someone as a Christmas gift or just because you like them and want them to know you really like them a lot!
There was a time when I would have tried to match their decor but then I remember that first quilt I made that was peach and blue; and then I remember (only because my friend, Sandy, reminded me) about the red and yellow drunkard’s path I started 25 years ago. Thank goodness I lost that top somewhere along the way.
If I knew a friend hated lime green, I wouldn’t use lime green in her quilt. Don’t worry . . if someone doesn’t like lime green, they can’t be my friend!
What are your thoughts on colors for quilts as gifts?
