One of our adult grandsons asked for a quilt for his new bed. He wanted a quilt that was "modern" and bright. I invaded the quilt shop and came home with fabrics that I really like and thought were perfect. Then I pulled out a quilt pattern that I had purchased at the Quilt Expo last fall. Pattern was too small so I proceeded to try and enlarge for a queen size bed. Cut fabrics, sewed fabrics, put on design wall. A disaster! Terrible looking! So I ripped it apart and decided I would make a string quilt using all the purchased fabrics plus what I could pull from my stash. Now I am down to the last section and I can see daylight at the end of the tunnel. Maybe by March I will have it finished for that sweet young man.
