That's a bit of a problem when she wants a large quilt. She doesn't think anything of asking me to whip out a quilt for her bed or for a church fund-raiser or even for one of her friends. In her mind the hard part is choosing which fabrics go together.
The upside is when she wants something small like a table runner - I can use great fabrics in colors that she loves and she'll think it was a very complicated project.
So.....I made her this quick bargello-ish table runner for her birthday. It took all of about 2 hours start to finish. I think the straight-line quilting took longer than anything else.
It actually turned out prettier than I expected and now I kind of want to make one for myself!
