What do you do when the quilt you are making as a gift isn't ready in time? Well, you make a second gift!
The wedding quilt I'm making for my friend wasn't ready in time. So instead, I made a quilt sampler. It's a 7" by 7" block with a smattering of the fabrics used in the quilt. I framed it (IKEA frame) with a pretty, complementary paper backing. And I typed up, and pasted a little note to the back of the frame.
As much as I wanted to have the real quilt ready for the big day, and be there when it was unfurled, admired and snuggled under, this was my next best option. And it fit in my backpack.
