A Bright Future

My hexie quilt is starting to take form.  
It is obvious to me that imitating the original is the best plan for these bright and busy fabrics.  The inspiration for this quilt came from a picture taken at the 2011 Sisters, Oregon Outdoor Quilt show.  I have tried to find info on the maker to give credit where credit is due, but to no avail.  If anyone knows anything about this quilt...
please let me know.
I thought the gals at Material Obsession might have made it, but could not find it on their blog or website.
Thanks to Janet, I found the maker and a kit for Pansy Patch, by Carolyn Davis.
You can find it here.

For some reason, 
perhaps a female grandchild??,
I am currently drawn to pure, cool hued fabrics.
Good Fortune,
by Kate Spain for Moda,
has really captured my attention..
All I need is a pattern that will allow me to show off the fabrics.
Carrie Nelson, of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company fame,
has posted a tease for a new pattern called BOUNCE.
I am intrigued by the staggered border and cannot wait for it to be available after Spring market.

My Scarlet Hedgehog bloomed.
Also played around with another annual blooming in the yard.
Coral and lime green seem to be calling my name;
 but anyone who knows me well, knows my favorite hues are orange, lime green and purple!
Perhaps I see an art quilt in my future.

I love your bright hexagons. Carolyn Davis made the original and a kit is sold on the MO website so you were right.
