Sea of Grass - Mar de hierba

This is a quilt that I made for my niece Natalia for her 50th birthday.

I started it with the idea of using only blue, yellow and green fabrics. Why did I decide that? I have no idea, I can't remember.

It is about 50x50 inches. All the fabrics are commercial cottons. Some of them are Dutch Wax manufactured in Holland by Vlisco, some I purchased in Mali 15 years ago, some are regular quilting fabrics that I collected since I started quilting in 2006.

It is machine pieced and hand quilted, and it has no binding, I faced it. I quilted it with Rainbows by Superior Threads, a 40wt trilobal polyester. The thread color is Citrus Cooler and it has green, yellow and orange. It is a very shiny thread.

The quilt is now in France and I am happy to say that the recipient likes it.
