The latest addition to our family arrived on Wednesday. My sister had her first baby, a chubby little boy named Cain. I am so behind on the quilt! This is the start of it. The browns and yellows on the left are the start of the triangle blocks that will be the background. I started off thinking I would make a whole bunch of half-square triangles, but it didn't seem right. When your quilt is inspired by key lime pie the half-square triangles seemed odd. So I cut them into rectangles to make narrow, right-angle triangles. And the greens will become... wait for it... appliqued circles. Hey, it's for the key limes!
Yup, quilts inspired by food. It was only a matter of time.
In truth, it is also a reminder of a time as a family in Mexico at Christmas. My sister and I rekindled our relationship there and I thought this quilt would serve as a sweet reminder of us putting the past behind us and focusing on the future. Oh, and the baby's room is yellow.
