My brother's girlfriend's birthday was on Easter. I racked my brain for a few days trying to figure out what to get her...
When I first met her several years ago she wore a lot of oranges and coral colors... I had a large print fabric in my 'stash' that I picked up at the Bobbin's Nest (on Homestead near Franklin Mall in Santa Clara - check out the store or her blog!). It was orange-y and coral with a bold print and I just loved it. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I bought it because I liked it. A lot.
So I decided to use the fabric to make her a Spring skirt to go with her Spring birthday. I am especially happy I was able to make it into a gift - so she could enjoy it...But I do wish I had more so I could make ME a gift... so I could continue to enjoy it. :)
The bottom contrast I also purchased at the Bobbin's Nest and it was for a baby quilt that I don't think I did much with. The contrast for the waist I picked up as an afterthought. I thought the squiggly lines were a good balance and perfect color match to the straight lines at the bottom.
I hope she likes it!
