My friend Kelly saw Stephen's simple patchwork quilt over the Christmas holidays and loved it. I said I'd make her a quilt. She said she wanted to pay me, but felt weird about it. So she's mailing me presents! I said she totally didn't need to compensate me in any way, but hey, I'm not going to turn away a present that appears at my doorstep! ;) [that means you guys can send me presents too! haha]
So far I've gotten: A Polaroid Pogo printer, Harry Potter scarf and pen [we're die-hard fans], puzzles, bath products, jewelry, and a pair of slippers. Quite the variety, yes?
So this quilt has to be goooood. She may want patchwork on the front, but I plan to spiff up the back a bit to surprise her!
I've pulled these fabrics. She requested purple-ish colors be involved, and I settled on this mulberry tone that I think suits her/goes well with the rest of the colors more than a true purple.
I'm cutting 5" squares so that I can throw in random squares from charm packs that fit the color scheme. So far I have 33 cut from pieces that were big enough from my scrap bins. So, 10% cut? Ew, let's not think of it like that! Hopefully cutting into the yardage tonight will go quick!
Plus I just put my Banksia top fabrics in the dryer so that when I get home from my interview I'll be able to iron them and cut out the pattern pieces! Happy Wednesday!
