The order came in the form of an email - 10 year old girl wants a new quilt for Christmas. Must be hot pink & black with peace signs, and some white would be OK too. Well, you know me, I had to see what I could come up with. I found a free pattern from WalMart, purchased my fabric from Connecting Threads online, rolled up my sleeves & went to work. I had to add the floral fabric because you can't have peace signs without flower power! Took about 3 1/2 weeks from start to finish (in between work, yard, etc.). Finished machine quilting it yesterday & the label went on last night. The name of the quilt is "Bailee's Choice". I hope I came close to what she wants. It was too dark this morning to photograph the quilt, so I asked Lee Bennet of Sevier Office Supply in Richfield if I could photograph the quilt in their store. I loved the backdrop of books & stuff. A BIG THANK YOU TO SEVIER OFFICE SUPPLY!
