Bev's Color Quilt

Some of you might remember the color block collage I made for my daughter and her BF using my hand-painted papers. This collage is done on an 18 x 24-inch canvas. Here's a photo:

Well, I was just speechless when, after Thanksgiving dinner, Mark's (DH) sister presented me with a quilt she made based on this collage. The collage squares are 2x2, and Bev made the quilt with 4x4 squares of fabric, carefully selecting the fabrics to create the same effect as the original collage. The quilt is 42 x 50 inches. Amazing!

Bev intended it as a lap quilt, but this baby is going on a wall somewhere in my house so I can look at it every day. I was so touched that she would create something based on my design!

WOW! What a fabulous gift! It's gonna look so great on a wall -- but how are you going to choose which one? :-)
