My good friend’s birthday was coming up and I wanted to make a quilt for her.
I saw this quilt on my friend’s Pinterest. click here When I am looking for a new idea for a quilt, first stop is at her Pinterest because she does a great job of pinning quilts that I love.
And found it here on this blog. CityStiches
I then headed over to my favorite fabric store Sister’s Quilters. They do an amazing job of picking 6 to 10 fabric that really go (from a collection of 30-40), keeping me from trying to figure out all the color choices (not my best strength) but I am getting better. Put it all together and you get this! Love this Simply Style Collection.
There wasn’t a pattern on the blog, so I kept the ipad on to the website and would count blocks. I love love the white space on this quilt. I love how modern it it. It was my first quilt borrowing my friends walking foot and doing straight lines. I LOVE it! As I worked on this quilt I started to think of all the amazing thing about my friend. She is willing to do any crazy adventure I plan. She is willing to help at a moment’s notice. She gives great advice. She is constantly helping everyone around her. I realized that I could start to describe all the different times she has be a PLUS in my life. I am much better when I am with her and she helps me be better than I am alone! Can’t imagine life without her and so glad I have been able to call her my friend and close neighbor for 10+ years!! Here’s to many many many more years +++++!
