This is our bedroom, recently the repainted room of my niece Laura. She has graduated from Florida State University and is living in Kansas. And here is a shout-out to two of her friends who had actually heard of me from following my blog! Hello, Wichita!

I started with a Ricky Tims pattern called Harmonic Convergence. I added some borders, appliquéd stems and folded flowers, and some hand-dyed fibers. The tropical colors look good in their house.
In their living room is another quilt that I made for them.
For this one I used the watercolor method of blending 2" square prints. The trees are fused separately over the patchwork. The border is made from an assortment of green and blue hand-dyed fabrics.
This quilt was a gift after Charlie and I visited their former home in Camano Island, Washington, north of Seattle.

The label I made for it has a photo transfer of the bay and landscape.
