So I enlisted my wonderful hubby's help to make this quilt happen. First I found a pattern that I liked--the Ziggy Baby quilt from Cluck, Cluck, Sew.
Then I had to choose the fabrics--with no fabric stores local, I had to order online. I used Fabric.com, and they have a really handy tool that allows you to select different fabrics and view the swatches together. Using that tool, I picked out some Kona solids--a pink, yellow, and white for the chevrons, and a print from Riley Blake's line called Sunny Happy Skies for the backing.
When my fabric arrived I prewashed, and then let hubby take over. He did all the cutting, piecing and quilting. It took him about 2 evenings to complete. I then squared it up, and did the binding. I love that so much love was poured into the making of this quilt, and I hope it's something she treasures for a long time. :)
