Christmas present already? Yep - pieced it in February, quilted it in May!
Made from a jelly roll. I sewed the entire thing together: end-to-end. I added in a few spare squares just to jazz it up a bit. Folded the LONG strip in 1/2, cut and sewed it to itself. Folded that strip in 1/2, cut and sewed it to itself. And on and on until it was the size I liked.
Add a couple of borders ... a REALLY fast quilt!
When my kid#1 got married, I immediately became a gramma to 4. The oldest (age 11) got a quilt for Christmas last year. A few days after, Kid#1 called me and said the youngest was overheard telling the neighbor kid - "Kierstyn got a quilt and next year, when I'm big, I'm going to get a quilt too."
Who could resist THAT?!
My first 2012 gift ... DONE!
