My friend had some fabric that she had planned on making a quilt with her grandmother. She asked me one time if I would be interested in helping her do the quilt since she didn't sew and her grandmother was getting older and wasn't in the best shape to help her do it. I decided that I wanted to get the fabric from her and buy some coordinating fabric and make a quilt for her for her birthday. Her birthday was on July 13th and she wanted a patriotic quilt. I got the fabric from her then went to the store buy a couple more colors to go with it. I didn't follow any pattern. I just cut all the fabric to the same size squares and then started laying it out. I didn't like how it looked laid out on the floor so my husband and I came up with the design of this quilt together. It turned out pretty cool. My friend loved it and was so excited about it. I had gotten the fabric from her on Monday and had to have it finished by Thursday night so I could give it to her on Friday for her birthday. It was a lot of fun to give her something she wasn't expecting. I enjoyed doing this for her and hope that she will always love it.
