Some time last year my friend Ruthie asked me ‘what does a single girl have to do to get a quilt?’
In December I started my not-so-secret ‘Project Ruthie’s Quilt’. And by that I mean that I think she was the only one who didn’t know I was making her a quilt! When I saw Legacy by Angela Walters, I knew I had found Ruthie’s fabric. I’ve never been to Ruthie’s house so I have no idea what colors she has used to decorate, but these colors and patterns here very HER. I was confident in my decision. I posted about my quest to find the right solid color here.
I also knew I wanted to do a Chevron quilt, and found Amanda Jean’s perfect instructions/tutorial (read ‘no HSTs’).
Fast forward a couple of months, and I posted about the quilting process. I’ve had it finished for over a month, but Ruthie travels for 3-4 weeks continuously every January/February for work, so she had been on the road and I had to keep it safe until I could give it to her.
And by ‘keep it safe’, I really mean ‘make sure it works’ and ‘break it in’.
Ruthie and our friend Nicki came over for wine & apps one night and we were FINALLY able to give it to her. I think she liked it! She said it will go perfectly in her living room! SUCCESS! (This is her in my living room.)
