When a friend has a great idea, to collect meaningful pieces of fabric and put them together in a quilt for our mama-friend-to-be, you say yes! Even when the question is can you take all this fabric and put it together into a quilt.
I like quilts. I have two. They are wonderful for napping under. But I have never quilted before. And it was important to make a quilt that was fresh and modern. I needed some back-up. So of course I headed to Pinterest. There I found a great tutorial on how to make a Modern Square quilt. Perfect!
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be but it is time consuming, especially on your first try. So if you take on this project, give yourself plenty of time. I also must admit that I had a secret weapon. I happen to work with a woman who is a master quilter and she helped explain so many things to me. I owe her a big thank you!
Happily I was able to finish it all by myself. And I may even make another one in the future.
If you have ever wanted to make a quilt, you should try it. If I can do it, you can too! And even if it is not perfect (which mine was far from) your friend will love it. Because it came from your heart.
