A while ago, Lorie so coyly asked me if I would like to make a quilt for her for her 30th birthday. This was almost a year ago, which seemed like ample time, so I said yes (besides the fact that she is a great friend and a quilt would be the perfect gift). I began looking for a quilt pattern that was "so Lorie." I had been intrigued by a houndstooth quilt and knew that Lorie had a thing for black and white. She had also told me she wanted oranges and other "sherberty" colors. I started on her quilt after Christmas and got the front...
and back pieced together in no time. I used this pattern. The directions were so easy and the method for the blocks was really great. I highly recommend it. Life then happened and the quilt stayed like this.
Last week, I went to my happy place and spent some time quilting and finishing this quilt.
I love how it came out. The scrappy binding and round corners are a favorite part for me. I also think that Lorie liked her gift as well, even if it was a little late.
