I was inspired by two different Wilmington Prints’ panels that depicted delicate but strong-stemmed plants blowing in the breeze. They reminded me so much of my daughter-in-law Brisa from Brazil, whose name in Portuguese translates to “the breeze” and who is truly a back-to-nature gal. I scanned or photographed my fabrics before designing the layout, which eliminates the possibility of running out of fabric and assures me that the final quilt will look very much like my EQ layout. She seemed delighted when I surprised her with it this Thanksgiving weekend.
