Do you know the feeling, when you put something off and put it off, debating back and forth what and how you want to do it? Or is it just me? Well, anyway, that is the story of this quilt. I don’t often make quilts, and when I do, they’re usually for my children, but this one is for a friend who is going through a rough time. I honestly haven’t known her that long, so I am hoping she’ll like it.
The fabric is Bella by Lotta Jansdotter. I’ve been a fan of Lotta’s art since my college days, when I was a stationery
hoarder collector instead of a fabric collector. Since the fabric is such large, bold prints, it seemed like a perfect chance to remake my Take-Along Quilt, and I’m really happy with how it’s turned out.
This quilt came together fast, I got the top pieced in about a week, which is lightening speed considering Silas’s twin bed quilt took over a year… I finished this quilt last Friday and shipped it off to the quilter promptly, it was a rainy day, so I couldn’t get enough light to get the whole quilt. But, when I get it back and bound, you’ll be seeing it again!
Have you ever gifted a quilt to an adult? I feel like babies and children’s are easy to choose fabric for, but that it’s much harder to choose for a friend.
