sew & tell: v3.2 ~ a quilt (but not mine)

Hello! I wanted to share a quilt with you today! It's not one that I made, but I did help with the fabric selection.

I have a good friend here who's husband is deployed.  He will be home on R&R soon and she wanted to surprise him with new bedding.  She picked out a quilt from Amy's book and I helped pick some fabrics to go together that weren't too feminine or masculine.  I think we struck a good balance.  And besides, each print was made by 3 of my favorite designers.

Lime Full Moon Dot by Amy Butler, Putty Henna Garden by Sandi Henderson, and Magnolia Bloom by Laura Gunn.

She whipped this quilt up so quickly it's inspiring.  I think this is only the 2nd quilt she's ever made.  The first one was made a month prior!  This is my same friend who made all the skirts.  The girl has drive!

I'm impressed with Amy's patterns too - this one was brilliantly put together.  All of these blocks are strip pieced into the same block and then just turned to create the pattern.  Genius! 

I wonder if there is work in just choosing fabrics.  THAT, I could do, because I'm the worst at finishing things in a timely manner!

Can't wait to see what you have finished this week!
