But a few months ago she sent me a text saying that she bought me fabric (a jelly roll of Tula Pink's Acacia). However, she liked it so much that she was going to keep it. I cracked up. She said that I could make her a quilt...or she might try. I told her we could do it together.
She picked out a solid and another jelly roll to go with it. She wanted a quilt large enough for her bed...talk about jumping in with all she has got! She also decided to make it into a duvet cover, so instead of binding the quilt she is going to sew a backing to it and stuff a duvet in. But It has to be quilted first.
After much deliberation she chose to make a Rail Fence quilt. I have never made one of these or seen one in person. So I got to try something new! We started ironing, cutting, and sewing the fabric on December 30th. But I am counting it as a 2014 project since Sarah left on the 2nd and I had to finish sewing the rows together alone...

Fabrics: Jelly Roll of Tula Pink's Acacia, Jelly Roll of Soho Chic for Moda, and yardage of Moda Bella Solids in Teal.
There were 14 left over blocks. So I made a couple pillows.
I can't baste or work on quilting the quilt for at least a week...but in the meantime I plan on washing the pillow covers so I can see how they crinkle up.
What are you working on this week?
