Days of Wine and Roses by martha11859
I made this quilt for my niece's 50th birthday celebration. She lives close to Napa Valley and collects wine, so when I found Susan Winget's line of fabric based on Napa wines and loaded with purple (my nieces favorite color) I knew I had to make her birthday present from that designer's fabric. I chose triangles because I enjoyed the artsy randomness of the design, and I thought she would too. I'd never cut or used triangles before and choosing the order of the colors was not as simple as just grab-and-sew. I knew I wanted lots of purple and that I wanted some of the purples to come together into diamonds--because she's :100:% diamond in my heart. :smiley: Anyway, it was fun and challenge and GREAT satisfaction when completed. And my niece was delighted to have a quilt made just for her.
