Waaaay back in April 2017 I made my friend Mia a quilt for her birthday and I was doing so many things at once back then I totally forgot to post pictures and the story behind the quilt!
The pattern is called Boxes and Crosses and is from Emma Jean Jansen’s book “By The Bundle” – it is a simple pattern but it looks great when finished! Simple square patchwork really does look great every.single.time 🙂
I used everything from my stash… I chose fabrics that had meaning for my friend and it was such fun fussy cutting a few of them so when she found them she would get a giggle!
It was to go in their bedroom so I kept it to blues and low volumes with a dash of pink from RiflePaper 🙂
Simple straight line quilting to keep to the simple theme and I love imagining Mia snuggling under the quilt after a long, tough day and getting a quilty hug from me!
Or maybe she and her husband and puppy dog can take it on a picnic in the park….
Or wrap themselves up on the porch reading a book or having a glass or two…….
Happy Birthday Mia!
