What was your inspiration?
My cousin wanted me to make a quilt for her niece - so I showed her some of the quilts I made in the past and asked her if she liked a certain style and she picked this style - and the original one I had was in pink and seashells - she asked for these colors and the blue/teal satin stripe...and here it is! It measures 65"w x 81.5 " L.
What are you most proud of?
That she really loved it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's not a difficult quilt - the only thing is the size - if it was smaller, it'd be easier to make. This is a really heavy quilt, good for those cold winter nights. I made sure that I double sewed the seams and when quilting, I sewed on top of the satin stripe.
