|Bag o fabric|
Unfortunately the sewing machine she was going to use wasn't working properly, the thought of making her first quilt was no longer of interest. She had talked about doing this quilt for months so I assumed letting go was a big decision, it would be for me.
As soon as she left the room I told my sister I wanted to make it for her and I would complete it in time for Christmas 6 months away. Maybe seeing it completed would encourage her to try again someday with my encouragement and help.
I started the first 2 rows using a fence rail and then was given the pattern of what it was planned to be, an Amy Butler design. I was able to download it free off line, looking at it I then created my own pattern starting with the fence rail and then using additional cuts creating a pie shape to each square. I liked it and hoped the recipient would too. It was a creation of 2 patterns, totally unique just like the lovely girl it was going to.
I made it queen size adding a pocket on the back where I included a note to the recipient. She loved it and her fabric selections brought out the lime green of her bedroom walls.
