This year I brought this fun quilt for our Yankee Swap. When I started it I had dreams of making it massively large and keeping it for myself. But I found it sitting in a WIP pile after several years and that changed. Rather than making another 20 blocks or so, I decided to finish it as is and gift it to a friend.
It is a basic churn dash quilt using various blues, yellows, and grays from my stash. It was one of the first projects I started working on when I came back to quilting. I can tell because all of my seams are between 3/8" and 1/2" wide! This was before the light bulb moment of perfect 1/4 seams. The quilt finishes at about 45" square and is backed in a fun blue and white plaid. I quilted it using my walking foot and what I'll call "organic straight line quilting." It is bound using a soft blue polka dot, also from my stash.

My friend A. got to keep the quilt and I'm so glad. It suits her personality perfectly! She is a kindergarten teacher and a generally cheerful, happy person! She says things like "aww sugar muffins", loves dancing to Pat Benatar, and is rarely found without a smile on her face. The quilt fits in perfectly in her living room. Though, I'm not sure which came first, the quilt or the yellow pillows!
I hope you enjoy cuddling with this quilt pretty lady!
