I made this quilt for my best friend in her favorite colors. I kinda made it up as I went along, but I figured out the size squares I wanted and then cut the different fabrics into various size blocks and strips and figured out a few different blocks I could make with each one. I used pale lavender fabric for the binding. It took me more than a year to finish it, due to procrastination and losing some of the fabric mid-way, but I finally did and gave it to her and she loved it!
