This has to be a record for me! I purchased the fabric on Tuesday, pieced on Wednesday, quilted on Thursday, binding/ label on Friday and gifted Sunday!
and SHE LOVED IT! Reactions like the Birthday Girl's are one of the reasons I quilt. As soon as she opened the quilt she ran over to her Mom to show everyone at her table. She was so excited!!
pattern source: here I adjusted the measurements to arrive at a slightly larger quilt. The checker border finishes at 6 inches and I think I cut the inside panel at 40 x 58. I knew I wanted the quilt to be close to 55 x 74 finished. The Birthday Girl has a tall boyfriend! :)
