Help Me! I need to design a baby quilt inspired by this painting
Fellow quilters! I need your help! I am, for the most part, a traditional quilter and I love Civil War prints, 30's reproductions prints and traditional quilt blocks etc. I am not an "art quilter".
I have been asked, by a very dear niece of mine, to make a quilt for her new baby based on this painting. The painting was done by her husband's little sister Gracie, shortly before Gracie died of a brain tumor at age 8. The plan is to use the painting as a focal point in the nursery.
The colors of the painting are most important and I think I can do that with some beautiful hand-dyed batiks. The flowers I can bring into the quilt with the quilting. What in the heck am I going to use for a design for the quilt top itself. Please help me. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
