Mom made this quilt for the Gig Harbor Quilt Festival (GHQF), an organization that raises money for local breast cancer charities and research. There will be several other quilts posted throughout the year that we made for GHQF.
The inspiration for this came from a painting that was donated for the GHQF Auction. Mom saw a quilt in the background of the painting and knew that it needed to be made. The quilt and painting were then auctioned as a set.
Mom drafted the pattern from the painting, then of course found it in a book when she was almost done. She added a couple of extra rows and omitted some of the white blocks on the outer edge to give it a little more red for framing.
