Pottery Barn's got nothing on me!


When the weather finally turned cold here (just before Thanksgiving), we decided that in order to keep our heating bill down, Bree would need a quilt that would actually cover her toddler bed (the quilt that came with her set was baby-sized). Since we're trying to be frugal, I decided to make one. Luckily, my friend Amy has a very large stash of quilting material that she's always offering to anyone within earshot. I found some adorable fabric that matches the kids' room. That, paired with an old red sheet that we never use, and some batting that my grandma donated, completed the necessary materials! Free! And I got to use my grandma's amazing quilting machine to quilt it together with a gorgeous rose pattern. Now Bree is all snug and warm under her custom-made Pottery Barn worthy quilt. I'm not sure if she fully appreciates the work that went into it, but I know she appreciates being warm!

That is amazing! It reminds me of that quilt you made for a YW project that you had on your bed. I still remember how much I loved that pattern/style. You are so talented!
