My friends daughter is turning 21. She said she would love a quilt made especially for her.
(she is on the left and Abbey is on the right - they are a month apart - gosh those 21 years have gone soo fast) by the way Abbey can't believe those hats were in fashion.
As she lives now in the South Island emails have been going three ways via her, her mum and I trying to choose a pattern.
She chose Teaberry and Stars quilt (isn't it pretty) - click on link for the free pattern.
Next was to choose fabric and get the right tones she likes - she likes rustic old fashioned/ modern look so the best thing was to send her to her local quilt shop to choose.some fat quarters.
She went in looking for reds and came out with
Beige and duck egg blue. Didn't she choose well!
As her mum reads the blog I've decided to not show any updates or progress of the quilt so it can be a BIG surprise (they know how I can keep any secret except my own so I bet they think I will weaken)
I can say the quilt is started and I am sewing tonight - Friday night
Linking up with Friday Night with Friends
