I was recently asked by a friend to make a quilt for his parent's 40th anniversary, and used the commission as an opportunity to toddle off to the local quilt store to search for inspiration. I found a few ideas, but I also found something ELSE - some fabric to turn into a little giveaway gift!
What's the gift, you ask? Ummm....not telling! Because, you see, I could say I'm making X, and you get all "OH, I love the X and want the X" and then X turns out to be a dismal failure (because I've never made anything like an X before!) and then y'all end up with a Y and you're disappointed, so you run and throw it in a lake. And we all know Y's don't float. And then I look dumb. And so on. So I'm not telling you what X is...but I will show you this:
Isn't it pritty? And, if all works out, it's going to make a darn cute X!!
