Then she changed her mind.
Ok. Fine. It is for her, and I do want her to like her quilt. I did explain to her that she needed to choose from my fabric stash then, I couldn't buy a whole new set of fabric. She looked through and decided that she wanted a purple and pink quilt, and chose the fabrics. I am now following, loosely, the quilt-along at Old Red Barn Co. and I am not sure how it will turn out, since I don't have quite the fabric requirements for the quilt...It should be interesting! Maybe I will get a prize for creativity!
