I was pretty excited when my LQS asked me to start sewing some samples for the store! I don't get paid or anything, but I do get free fabric and a pattern and I get to keep the finished project when she's done displaying it.
Here is my first project. It's called the Sleep-Over Quilt and it's a simple project to put together. It's basically 24 layer cake squares, sewn together, quilted and bound. Then some pockets are added to the outside. The quilt folds into the large pocket and the two smaller ones are to tuck in a toothbrush, pj's and any thing else you might need for a sleep over.
And here's the pattern. Easy Peasy, great directions. I would make the handles a bit longer next time, though.
