Surprise request…

Steph was over yesterday…..out of the blue, she says, “I want to make a quilt, Mom”. 

So after a little questioning, we determined that she wanted a lap sized quilt to drape over her bed.  She perused a few of my books, and we settled on a simple pattern….

…..from the book “The Modern Quilt Workshop”, by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle. 

She learned measuring and cutting, with a rotary cutter and ruler, very quick…

And took home this pile of fabric (all from my shelf), planning to cut it  into approximately 400 rectangles:

She will finish all the cutting tonight, and then I can introduce her to the sewing machine.  Maybe tomorrow.      Oh, I do hope she enjoys this project!  I’ve got lots more fabric for her to use!

  1. Oh lord, you shouldn’t have mentioned fabric, all your friends are going to bury her in the stuff!! And yes, it would be a good subject for a blog post.

  2. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
    Love the colors she picked. Tell her that she MIGHT want to BLOG abut it!!! lol
