My friend Nicole is a new quilter, and has just completed her third quilt.
I am so proud of her. She purchased her own pattern and fabric, then constructed the quilt all on her own without asking any questions.
I am always happy to answer any questions, or to help in any way, but this was a signal to me that she is confident enough to go into a quilt shop and make her own decisions. Yeah Nicole!
I think she did a great job.
Yesterday she came over for a little help getting the binding sewn on. After all these years of quilting, I still find putting on binding a little challenging. There is always that stressful moment to see if I've managed to get all 4 corners to line up at a perfect angle. I've gotten better with time and practice, and Nicole will do the same.
The title of the quilt is "Sunshine Quilt" and it the design came from the book "Strip Happy" by Donna Kinsey.
