This time last year I made a quilt. Not just any quilt, but a quilt I sat down on a Monday and worked for four straight days to finish...
I had bought two charm packs from the Missouri Star Quilt Company with the intention of making something for our good friend and neighbour Connie... and then totally forgot until a week before her birthday. It was A's first year of what should have been full day school and I thought, "hey, I have the time, why not make a quilt?" So I spent four straight days sewing.
I used a Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern that was featured in the Fons&Porter's Quilting Quickly Fall 2013 Magazine - 19 Easy projects by Jenny Doan and Missouri Star Quilt Co.
It was extremely fun to make and while it was a little rushed and my squares are not totally perfect, it is cherished by Connie and I was very much pleased with the end result. It also taught me that I will never again spend QUITE that much time at a sewing machine!
