The Sleep-Over Quilt


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.

That sleepover quilt is really nice. I remember making something similar to that many many years ago LOL. The difference is, I made a little pillow instead of the bag to hold the essentials. That is good that you are making these items and you get to keep the fabric, pattern, and the finished product after done with displaying. Hope the deal is the same when you put out a lovely quilt, Kelli. Beautiful job Kelli.I like the things you have made, and the fabrics are gorgeous. I enjoy your blog, and will pay you a visit again. Thank you.
