Michigan Blue

I'm in love with this quilt. It was tough to give away but fortunately, it was for a good cause.

My cousin, Aaron, and his lovely fiance, Jenn, are getting married in August so of course, I wanted to make them a lovely creation. I asked Jenn to pick out a color scheme and pattern. She definitely gravitated toward squares within squars. As for colors, she said that they liked blues.

I had purchased a fat bundle of awesome Lotta Jansdotter Glimma fabric during a visit to Crimson Tate in the fall so this project was the perfect excuse to cut in to the bundle.

The teal and gold mixed in with the blue reminded me Lake George in the summer. (My grandparents had a home on Lake George and my cousin Aaron and I spent many weekends together at Lake George.)

Here's a photo on progress. I added several of my own scraps to make this a a bigger quilt.

 Here are some photos of Aaron and Jenn at their wedding shower. It was held at Lake George on Independence Day weekend. (Check out the blue and red quilt used to hold the presents. I made that quilt - Anchor's Away - for another family member.)
