I absolutely love it! The prints are entirely from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line, with some Gee's Bend hand-dyed solids and Kaffe Fassett shot cottons thrown in. I think they compliment each other nicely.
I remember when my mom first bought all these fabrics, and couldn't decide how to best use them. She finally settled on equilateral triangles (sometimes called Thousand Pyramids) and I think the geometry suits the prints nicely.

My mom quilted it with free-form wavy lines, reminiscent of my twiggy quilt, which was inspired by the hills of Tennessee.
This quilt was on my bed until recently, when Knoxville was suddenly boiling in 90-degree weather. Summer happens all at once here! It's been cooler the last few nights, so perhaps I can get a bit more use out of this beauty after all.
You can see more of my mom's work on her Flickr site, here!
One more thing before you go: I will be hosting a giveaway here next week for Sew Mama Sew's annual Giveaway Day! It begins May 23rd so be sure to check back!
