As I was making our Paris quilt, Siena asked me to make her one too. I found a few Paris fabrics that were a little brighter colors, and she fell in love with them. Lucas was right there also, asking for one for himself. And that is my friends, exactly what a crafter mom wants… a heartfelt request that I can oblige happily.
I made her a tote bag first, and I made them both a pillow case.
With an easy folding in the back. A simple pillow indeed they’ve enjoyed all year long already.
The quilt they asked me for took longer to make. Much longer!
They each picked the fabrics and the colors. I made the top last winter, so about a year ago. As soon as I finished the one for our bed. It didn’t take me long to decide the pattern. I wanted both of them to be about the same pattern. And even with that similarities, I think they both look so different.
So these tops were done for a very long time (a year) before they were completed.
To be continued…
