Variations of French Wrens Handmade Quilt

There are color combinations and then there are color combinations. Some quilts, like our Happy Garden throw, has colors that combine orange fabrics to brighten a room as does this Variations of French Wrens Handmade Quilt, with fabrics that suggest a touch of spring with a dash of spice.

My garden has been inspiration for color combinations so I wondered where I would find these particular colors. The mint green against the pastel peach is definitely a spring combination and then the spicy brick red is a mystery to find but it certainly makes everything pop.

Gana Harris, the quilter, explains in the quilt description what prompted her to make this handmade quilt that was on display during the 2015 Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild show in Rolla, Missouri:

 Love the stories behind handmade quilts, each unique as well.
