    I took my granddaughter to the fabric store to pick out some material for a quilt. She picked this kit. Even on sale the kit seemed a bit pricy for what they are but it was what she wanted so I caved in.

    The first quilt that I made took forever. This is my second one. It only took a couple of days. I think I like instant gratification every now and then.

    I made a bag for this one too so she can carry it with her on sleepovers.

    That is super...it's almost like the bag was for free! Nothing better than that.

    And tote to boot, usually I never have enough in kits* cause I don't always read twice and cut wrong!
