A long time ago I bought this Fat Quarter Bundle of "Fresh Cut" by Heather Bailey. It sat on my shelf just waiting for a special project and then when I decided to make a very dear friend a quilt - I knew these were the perfect fabrics. I teamed them up with matching Kona Solids to complement each of the fabrics in the bundle.
Katie and I have share a friendship for over 30 years. We lived across the road from each other as children and have been a big part of one anothers lives since. We went to school together, we were Bridesmaids for each other, our daughters have been named after each other and we are Godparents to the others beautiful daughters. A true and special friendship indeed.
Back in August of last year I went on a Sewing Retreat armed with the bundle of fabrics and the Swoon pattern by Thimble Blossoms - determined to leave after the weekend with a Quilt top for Katie to celebrate her birthday.
After lots of sewing I did take away a finished quilt top. I gave it to The Quilting Cottage machine quilt it for me.
To my dear friend Katie, you are such a special part of my life - Happy Birthday!
