    This is the first quilt my sister made. I'm pretty new myself but she wanted me to teach her to sew. This was her first project (#1 of 5 quilts). She wants to complete 5 of these as "friendship" quilts for her college roommates. They will all be the same pattern but personalized to each girls 3 favorite colors. I'm very proud of her and hope she continues so I have sewing buddy in the future:)
