A good friend commented on a photo of the mystery quilt I was working on to ask when I was making her a quilt. She’s not just a ‘good friend’: she’s been a friend through some difficult times. She’s been my friend when I’ve probably been pretty impossible person be be a friend with. But she’s crazy enough to have stuck with me, and I appreciate it more than I could tell her. So I made her a quilt.
She wouldn’t give many any ideas of what she’d like other than bright colours and no pink. I had a billion different ideas, and narrowed them down to 2. I finally settled on using the purse strings block developed by My Quilt Infatuation. (I’d still kinda like to try the other idea; I will some day.)
I decided to use 6 rainbow colours: purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. I decided to use lots of different fabrics just to make my life more difficult. I didn’t know if I’d put the colour blocks around randomly or what, but in the end they wound up in a diagonal rainbow.
You can see all the photos as it was developed here if you are interested. Here are a few progress photos.
