Another aspect of her quilt pattern that I like is the way the flower colors coordinate. She pieces 2 different-colored flowers for each flower motif in the pattern, and the 2-color pairs look great together. Do I really need to say how much I like the Bright Colors? And the black to set them off? I love Holly’s color sense.
