Hello my Quilty friends! 
Today's quilt is for my daughter. She heads off to college in the Fall and I wanted to make her a special quilt. I wanted something with lots of color, yet modern. Can I tell you how many patterns I have purchased thinking that she would like them. I think I have about 8 different patterns!  
Well...earlier this year I received my issue of American Patchwork and quilting Magazine (Issue 144 February 2017) and the pattern for this wonderful colorful quilt was in it. I showed her the quilt and she said yes and in the same breath she said but, in gray! Gray is her favorite color. 
 Here is my photographer assistant, Guinness. He likes to go on Photo shoots with me. 
The pattern is called "Ripple" and the Ombre fabric is by V and Co. 
I LOVE the quilting on this done by my friend Diane- Creative stitching Services. This pattern is called Time Warp.  She always knows what pattern to put on my quilts! 
This was a nice easy pattern, unless you have SDD...Sew Directional disorder ( Just made this up, LOL). I sometimes got the light ends put on the darker side ends, and then out would come the seam ripper. 
And of course minky on the back! This is one big quilt finished it is 73" X 90". when I finished binding this I went to give it to her in her room and she was asleep, so I just covered her with the quilt and the first thing she said in the morning was, I love it, it is just perfect! 
Words that make a Mamma happy. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide 
Finish up Fridays.
