Last night I met a friend (actually my dentist's daughter, who is also my dentist)
at the local quilt shop.
Turns out she wants to learn how to quilt.
She received a sewing machine for her birthday and wants me to help her.
She breezed into the shop about 10 minutes before it was going to close.
I had 2 patterns picked out for her to choose from.
She chose Take 5 and away we went searching for fabric.
Just so happens they had the new Perfectly Perched by Laurie Wisburn in the shop,
or at least a few bolts of it anyway, in the aqua and green color way.
My two favorite colors!!
These are the three prints she chose
We also picked out a green that matched the chairs and
a gray that matched the birds in the second swatch.
This is going to be one adorable quilt!
She chose the green solid for an inner border and the dark birds for the outer border.
I am hoping she comes tonight so we can cut it out!
Isn't it fun helping a new quilter?
Do you remember your first quilt?
Mine was hideous!
So not me anymore.
Deep dark Thimbleberries colors.
I hope she will like this one when it's all finished.
