This is just another story about how a project that came to be, didn't come out the way it was originally envisioned. This is of course not to say that it's horrible. I think it's rather awesome. Long story short, and this usually happens to be the most often told story in my crafty life, big dreams but little time.
Now of course that doesn't mean that this was a last minute project. B's sister is getting married next month and I had been thinking of making her quilt for quite some time. So her bridal shower proved to be the perfect excuse for some crafty gift giving. Her quilt had been brewing in my mind for a few months already. But somehow, and again, the story most often told in my crafty life, time just sneaks up on you. So idea #1 through 3 that involved applique and freezer paper and all sorts of new techniques (okay maybe just 2 new techniques) got shoved in the closet. And here enters the theme, simple is better.
