Gift for a friend

A very good friend of mine is having a crisis in her life at the moment.
I was going to give her the Pink QAYG quilt but purple is her colour.
So I decided to make this Turning Twenty Quilt. I have made these quilts before. They are very quick and easy to put together.

This one is made from nine fat quarters... not the usual twenty.
It is a lap quilt.
I thought I had cut up nine fat quarters but had only cut up eight so I had to add the middle block adding some hearts to it.
I have stipple quilted it myself and bound it with a scrappy binding.


I used a variegated thread for the quilting

I hope she likes it.

I will be drawing the giveaway in a few days.
