These were the third and fourth quilts I ever made. I don't currently have pictures of the first two so these are the first recorded quilts. My best friend and I were seniors in high school preparing to go off to college. The colleges we were applying to had extra long twin beds so I decided to make us quasi-matching quilts that were extra long to fit the beds. I picked a nine patch patter for both of us tied with ribbons (it was something new I'd seen and wanted to try out). We each picked out our own fabric but the pattern matched and that was fun. I went for mostly pastels with fun flowery and very girly prints. All of her prints were plaids and stars. We used sheets for the backing so they'd match the sheets we were putting on our beds.
|Update: she sent me a picture of it on a bed. I just love the fabric choices!|
