Lemon tart, freddos, Big M, Magnum choc mint ice-cream & Yoga
You must be wondering what has the heading to do with quilting. Well, they were my inspiration for colors choices for Surprise Quilt No.1. It is a strange combination for a quilt inspiration but they are one of my yoga, travel and all time bestie's favorite things (and mine too!). Angeline is an amazing yoga teacher (that's her on the mood board). We often have this yearly 'conference' during summertime when she visits me in Melbourne. The 'conference' entails daily yoga practice together (often having a good laugh in class with our inner child coming out to play), and talking all things yoga and creative ideas while enjoying a slice (or two) of lemon tart, a couple of delicious snack size chocolate Freddos, a shared glass of chocolate milk called Big M or on a very hot day, a Magnum Peppermint ice-cream mini stick. During our conference she has the hard task of motivating my lazy bum into practicing daily to work off all these yummy treats.
This quilt is made for Angeline to thank her for our amazing friendship, to the many crazy experiences we had, and to the ones we will continue to make as we journey our way through life.
