In 2005 we were building a new house. Since we were spending soooo much money on the house my husband and I decided not to get each other anything for Christmas. However, I decided I wanted to make him a quilt for his office in the new house. I embroidered blocks of different items that he likes or things that we liked to do together. I went to at least 3 stores before I found the airplane fabric – my husband has his general pilots license.
In 2006, my mom wanted us to work together to make a quilt for my sister for her birthday. Since she loves ladybugs we couldn’t help but make a lone star quilt out of ladybug fabrics! Why a complicated quilt? It wasn’t! We used QuiltSmart Interfacing to make the star and it was so easy! So easy that we also made a patriotic lone star for over my mantel!
