Gem Stones is a collection by Gerri Robinson under the designer name PSD2. WHAT is PSD2? Pure and Simple Designs for the Next Generation.
Eric and I have 3 adult sons (Andrew – 37, Josh – 28 and Michael – 23) who love quilts but NOT their mom’s quilts of florals, stripes, stars and pinwheels. They want quilts that look and act more like them – more graphic, less designed, simple and clean.
Just as each son is unique, their taste in color, style and design is unique as well.
Andrew’s design style is very minimalistic with a lean toward a neutral palette but does not mind an occasional pop of color every now and then. Andrew prefers his quilts show more “texture” (quilting) than piecing.
Josh lives a life full of color and his design style mimics that as well. There isn’t a color, a shade or a tone he’s afraid of; the more the better! True to his love of color, he prefers a quilt that’s full of design but long enough to tuck under his feet and chin when he lays down.
Michael doesn’t get caught up in the color (although his “go to” color is always blue) or design aspect of a quilt but more its functionality. He needs his quilts big enough for his 6’3” body and new wife to cuddle under and keep warm!
