Take 5 (purchased pattern at a quilt shop)
Type of item: Functional
cotton fabric, batting
What was your inspiration?
My Aunt wanted a quilt with pinks and yellows. I found the rose fabric, which had both, and some green and burgundy hopefully tied it all together.
What are you most proud of?
That I FINALLY finished ths quilt! Originally, my mom was going to make the top and I was going to quilt it. She got frustrated cutting the pieces out, so she boxed the whole project up and mailed it back to me. It was challenging picking up a project where someone else left off. I finally had finished piecing the center part of this quilt, and I had to set it aside to work on other things. In the meantime, I had it folded on my cutting table, and my cat coughed up a hairball on it!!! So I had to wash and iron an unquilted top, which I had never done before. (Luckily the stain came out.) I think my mom and I started this in November 2008, and the quilt was completed in March 2012. Thank goodness this one is DONE!! :-)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The Take 5 pattern is really easy and fun. Pick 5 fabrics and enjoy yourself! Oh yeah, and don't leave unquilted tops out where your cat can barf on them! :-)
