I spent some time last fall/early winter making a collection of presents for my wonderful friend, Jenni, as she is getting married this summer. I knew I wanted to make her a quilt, but then I also decided I needed to challenge myself to use all of the scraps to make more presents as well because obviously presents should be all matchy matchy. I happily succeeded in that endeavor and made a tote (with a pocket), a zipper pouch, and coasters. 😊
This was my second quilt, and I used the same pattern as the first (the Cozy Throw Quilt) but I added two more rows to the length because my first one just felt a little bit tiny. The second time around went a bit better, and I'm starting to learn where I'm going wrong which is always helpful, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I even embroidered their initials on one of the stripes.
