I made this for a friend who saw the pattern in the book I was using. I had just finished the stained glass quilt and she loved this one so I made it for her. She lives 1700 miles away so I sent her pictures of tons of different fabric until we both agreed on what to use. I had to love it too if I was going to be working with it...=) It turned out fabulous and we both just love it. I had a hard time sending it to her because in the end, I just loved how it came out.
