This project was a joy!  The client came to see my studio, to look for something in honor of her 40th birthday, and what caught her eye was a small panel, 8×8″ on my living room wall, which I’d made for myself.  Michelle commissioned me to make three panels, 12×12″, to go over her mantle.

I started by making the middle panel, inspired by my own piece.  Then I worked on the two side panels in tandem, so I could visualize the whole pattern.  Each square is a different variation on Log Cabin or Square within a Square quilt patterns, and each has its own personality.   Michelle said her mother said they are like jewels.  I love that image!  I am honored that Michelle chose my work as a way to celebrate a special event in her life, and that I could bring vibrant color and sparkle into her living room.
