That I can get this finished in the next three weeks.
I’m making this quilt for my daughter Rachel who is turning 12 on the tenth of April. It’s the New Wave pattern from Oh Fransson, made in Innocent Crush. I love these fabrics – the colours are so gorgeous. Rachel has a bit of a thing for colour order (I can’t imagine where she gets that from, ahem) and these fabrics do that so well. I haven’t made a bed-size quilt for her since she was about 7, and it is pretty babyish. Time for something a little more grown up, I think.
I plan on hand quilting this with coordinating perle cottons in the white stripes. I was going to try and hide it until it was finished, but I really don’t think that will be possible. I’ll just pretend it’s not for her instead. Of course, that has the added advantage that if she hates it I will have time to buy her a gift instead!
I finished my rose stars this morning! Now on to the 34 joining pieces. Onward and upward!
