One of my absolute, all-time besties — otherwise know as Kate, K8 and sometimes Kate-Monster — got married over the summer and I just couldn't give my friend anything other than a quilt for the big event.
And I'm finally almost finished.
Seven months after the fact.
I used the Strip Twist Pattern to make this red and pink quilt, and I really think it came together well. I love how the diamond shape pops out, but the block is really a square set straight, not on point. Check out the pattern link to see what I mean.
Question: Have you ever given anyone pieces of a quilt as a gift, and then immediately taken it back so you could finish it? (I realllllly hope so, because that's totally what I did to Kate the day before her wedding. Gave her a present and then took it right back.)
I've gotta' tell y'all, this is a fantastic quilt to make with scraps, and it's really really fast and easy to make. For realz.
Next up: quilt and bind it! Hopefully I'll have some more pix soon of the absolutely finished, 100% done Kate Kwilt!
