Ever have a present that you wanted to keep for yourself? This was mine. After it was pieced, quilted, washed and dried, I wasn't sure I could part with it. But it was less than a week before we were leaving for my parents and what else would I get them? So gift it, I did.
Here's the front. It was supposed to be this quilt. But I switched it up a bit. I used an old bundle of fat quarters that I got on clearance. I love them. But that was also part of the reason I hated to give it away...it's not like I can go out and buy more fabric to replicate this quilt! It's a one of a kind for sure.
Thanks to my friend Diana, who JUST started quilting (crazy mad woman made 3 quilts in about a month!), I had to add a cute strip to the back. Extra work, but I love it!
It got plenty of use this trip. Especially because it was winter. And we got snowed in. And lost power. It really was fun, but I sure was grateful for any extra blankets :)
And I still think it would look awefully nice in my house.
