my own quilt

I had a fabulous college roomie who made me the best wedding a gift: a quilt I designed and picked out fabric for and that she spent many hours assembling (amidst her grandmother's comments "That's not a real quilt"). Poor sweetie!

I do adore it though and it really "makes" my room. The paint color and the paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling are all inspired by the quilt itself.

Here's the original inspiration, a painting by Kandinsky (simply a color study he did!)

Here's the only in-progress photo I seem to have, on the dorm room floor:

And here it is today, still bright and colorful:
