About the time we had all the fabrics together and were happy - she had about grown out of sunflowers. Well then I needed something to sew and didn't want to make clothes (the horror!) so I put this together anyway. When she was a senior in high school . You can see the finished top here.
Last Summer I was talking to a friend of mine who has a long arm - because honestly I was going to farm it out for quilting and pay someone. This woman is a fantastic quilter - loves playing with her machine and learning new things. The layout on this quilt gave her the perfect place to play - and honestly, I did not care what was done to the quilt - I just wanted it done.
When she offered to quilt it - I jumped at the chance. Like I said she does beautiful work. She asked some very important questions - like how will she use it - apparently if you are going to wrap up in the quilt, then you want less quilting so the quilt is not stiff and hard.
This quilt is fabulous and flexible and cushy and warm. Now The Princess is waiting on me to find a box big enough so I can mail it to her. She might have a minute to wait since I just mailed these on Friday!
