Our FREE pattern Jimmy John has been hugely popular. I have gotten several notes from readers that they are making the quilt and are loving it. I recently got a note from Elizabeth.
The note said, “Thank you for the free pattern-LOVE IT! Here’s my take on it. I used fabric that was gifted to me. The giver got it in Australia-the prints were aboriginal like; very cool. Anyway, I gave her the quilt yesterday and she was speechless. She bought the fabric to make a quilt but never did, so now she has a quilt with fabrics that were meaningful to her from her trip to Australia.”
Luckily she added picture of her quilt and gave us permission to feature them here on the blog.
Isn’t it pretty?? One of the things I love about this quilt is that it can be a great guy or a girl quilt.
Elizabeth was crafty and put together a cute backing too.
I think the story of the quilt is fun too…gifting back a quilt that was made with fabrics that were gifted to you! FUN!
Thanks for sharing your quilt with us Elizabeth!
