I am happy to share with you a free to use design I did for Quilting Treasures using their newly released Verde collection:
I was tasked with coming up with something a bit more contemporary with the really fresh looking fabrics from the Verde collection. So, I went for the “text box” look to reflect the texting culture of our world, thus the “…” at the end of the text boxes. [Side note: Even Miss Baby would ask me to "text an email" to her teacher to tell her teacher something! I think sometimes I forget just how pervasive texting is in our daily life. I am an absolute minimalist when it comes to texting, and yet my 5 year old knows about texting!]
Bamboos are currently vogue in our culture, as in bamboo batting in the world of quilting. So, I went to the traditional Oriental bamboo frames (like the one shown below) for inspiration to frame the blocks, bringing the traditional to be relevant (somewhat!) even our texting culture. :)
I hope you like my Verde quilt design. I can see each text box personalized in your version.

Thanks for stopping by. Please allow me to thank you for your well wishing comments. I am feeling much better, and just need to get back to the swing of things related to work.
I shall catch up with you later!
Meanwhile, if you haven’t checked out my other free-to-use patterns released in 2014, here they are!
