This fresh quilt was made by Bonny for her daughter. One focal fabric with some beautiful coordinating tone-on-tones and solids sure do make for a lovely quilt.
I would say that about half of my clients make quilt design decisions over email and/or text and half visit my studio and we come up with a plan in person. (Covid did increase the need for distant consultations this spring though!) I am glad Bonny was able to bring this quilt in person as she made a much bolder thread choice than I would have suggested through photos, but I love the end result!
Bonny chose the Raindrops pantograph, one of my Northcott wide backings and a peachy brown thread. The thread that looked like it matched the peach fabric when on the cone looked almost white on the solid blue sashing. When I pulled out some darker options we found just the right one. So Fine #417 called Antique Rose. Auditioning odd threads sometimes results in the perfect fit!
