Two of my grandsons, Sam and Jack, are color-blind. So is Tim Gibbons, my cousin Dennis and Linda's son. This Tumbing Blocks of Many Colors is in celebration of Tim's marriage to Kim a year ago. When Tim and Kim were choosing the color and design for their quilt, Tim's ability to discern lights, mediums, and darks became a key factor. There's a neat 3-D effect which I think Tim will be able to see. Tim and Kim are expecting their first child in September - perhaps Kim can use the quilt as a way to teach their child the colors of the spectrum!
I'm temporarily shutting down the studio - again - while I have my other knee replaced. My goal was to get this quilt top pieced together. There were originally over 150 individual pieces for this quilt - now it's in 3 big sections. My new goal is to have this quilt delivered before Kim delivers!
