In January 2018, my darling husband's boss took the entire company (it's small) to Cozumel, all expenses paid for a week as a thank you. Oh my! So, this quilt is a long time in coming, but I found the pattern and knew that this was the one for them. Thomas and Penny are Chinese, so I tried to use colors that would be significant for them. Red for the background was the obvious choice.
Then there were these large open spaces just designed to play with quilting! I even had to get 2 new longarm rulers to make this quilt.
The backing fabric is a really pretty batik. So many solids on the front, that this was the perfect time to use this fabric. Also reminded me of some of the colors of the ocean there.
