100% cotton quilting fabric
What was your inspiration?
My sister-in-law, Lorna, and I decided to make a quilt together for my younger sister, Diane. We chose the "Sister's Choice" block and designed the quilt top ourselves. We had a great time selecting fabrics and beginning to piece the blocks together while on a shared vacation. But we live in different states, so we had split up the rest of the work and mail it back and forth to one another.
What are you most proud of?
How much Diane loves the quilt, and how happy Lorna and I were as we created it together.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Traditional quilt blocks are a great starting point for designing your own quilt. All it takes is graph paper and colored pencils, and probably a bit of math, to design a quilt.
