She chose a quilt kit, one of those offered by "Patchwork with Gail B". I've done a few of their kits and have found them to be truly enjoyable projects. This one lived up to that, and then some, because with every step, I was really enjoying imagining Asta's face when I'd deliver the quilt.
Much of the design involves sub-dividing charm squares (Moda fabrics). And here we go, cutting the squares into quarters.
More importantly, Asta just loves it. The delight on her face was worth every stitch. She grabbed that quilt and made a bee-line for her bedroom, where she spent a little "private time" with her treasure while her mother and I chatted over a "cuppa".
I think Asta said "thank you" about 30 times - and I'm just delighted that she's so happy with it. It's a good size - 61" x 73" - and the materials Gail B's put in the kit are high quality, so I'm sure that quilt will last a lifetime.
