I am not a quilter. I like patchwork and would like to make a quilt, but it hasn’t happened yet. When I read about Quilts for the Kims, I thought, OK, I’ll give it a go. I was deeply touched by their story and thought this would be one way for me to do something for them. Here’s what I came up with….
My square had to be yellow and I really struggled with this. I like yellow, but for whatever reason I don’t have much yellow fabric in my stash. I took a few trips to different fabric stores and realized why….there isn’t much cute yellow fabric out there. I bought a couple fat quarters and threw in a little pink and green to make it work. I am pretty happy with the results. It’s a basic log cabin design. My calculations were a bit off, so I added the striped strips to two sides to get to twelve inches. I was worried it would look off, but I actually like it. Thank goodness for happy accidents!
