    House Warming Gift

    This quilt was made as a house warming gift for my dear friend who is the art teacher at the school where I teach. We are very close, she is like the daughter I've never had. I actually made the smaller version of this quilt for myself but used a darker border. She loved my quilt so that inspired me to enlarge the pattern and make one for her new bedroom. The pattern I used was from Moda Bake Shop, it is called "Off the Grid". The fabric I used is from Moda also, Butterscotch and Roses. I've included a picture of my dear friend with her new quilt. Thanks for looking.
