For Christmas, I gave my nephews white 10″ fabric squares and fabric pens:

The idea was for them to spend a little less time gaming and a little more time crafting.

It’s good for you.

Anyway, they’ve made some lovely designs:

Well, they’ve finally almost finished all their squares (12 total) and so I bought this purple fabric to frame them:

And this accent fabric for the border:

Because the whole quilt will be crafted with LOVE and what better to symbolize that love than colorful hearts?!

What you may not realize is that my brother married my best friend who I’ve known since 5th grade so some of my love is getting stitched into this quilt for her.

In case you missed it, she ALREADY has one quilt I made and she (if not my brother) LOVES it:

I suppose it’s not all bad to have an extra 10 hours a week to spend quilting instead of commuting. . .
