I've been on the lookout for years for a special project. I've been wanting to make a quilt for a remarkable couple, but hadn't ever found the perfect pattern for them....until now. When I stumbled upon this one, I knew I had found it:
It came in a kit and I'm not a big fan of kits. I've only made one other quilt using a kit so that's probably not a fair assessment, but I cut carefully and it was a still a very close call as to whether I'd have enough fabric. I squeaked by, but my SIL said the same thing about kits she has ordered. Still, this was perfect so I bit the bullet.The fabric is still available so I am going to play it safe and order some extra.
Then I became incredibly intimidated when I opened up the pattern:
There are 28 pages of instructions! Good gravy!! I am nothing if not determined though, but I am going to take precautions and make the accompanying table runner with some fabric in my stash first just to give me a little insight into the construction. And if I want this finished by Christmas, I had better get started!
