Emily was one of my college roomies. She is one of the kindest, more sincere people that I know. And regardless of the last time I saw her (which happens to be last friday night!), if I called her up right now and needed something, she’d be there for me.
This year I wanted to do something super fabulous for her birthday. I don’t usually do gifts for my friends’ birthdays, because I have this obsession with giving handmade, and not enough time to make all of the gifts 🙂 But this was gonna be the year.
I decided on this bright and funky quilt, because it just feels like Emily to me! It is made of flannel, and all of the squares are raw-edge appliqued, which gives it a really soft and fuzzy feel 🙂 It will be perfect for the cold winter nights in Em’s new apartment!

Matt and I went to dinner with Emily this weekend while we were up visiting my family, so I got to hand deliver her gift. She absolutely loved it, which made me so happy!
(The pattern is, but I added the blocks with the appliqued 4-patches to make the quilt larger.)
PS Emily is the fabulous graphic designer who created my logo and Etsy banner!)
