I’m planning a gift quilt for a family birthday in September. I love making things for people I love, but gift quilts are often the hardest to plan, since the recipients often have a more traditional style than I do, and I want the gift to reflect their tastes and mesh with their home.
Nicey Jane’s vintage feel, though, should bridge the gap. I’m planning a simple quilt with fussy cut roses framed by the green kona and pink tiny-gingham, with the stripes for the backing. I think we’ll both be happy with the result.
How do you reconcile your style with those of recipients?
