Often the best ideas for quilts come from seeing quilts that other quilters have made, and hearing how they got their ideas.
Above is a quilt that I made for a teacher’s new baby. Quilting daughter, Stephanie, found a greeting card with this picture on it, and she decided it would make a great quilt.
And, she was right. It was a challenge to create the pattern and sew it together, but it remains one of my favorite quilts – both from the feeling of accomplishment and, well, I just like the quilt!
