Problem #1 - Quilts cost a lot of money to buy and two weeks isn't nearly enough time to make one in any design I'd like even if I had all the material picked out and on hand. (Never mind that I've never even made a full sized quilt in my life!)
That problem was solved with a thrift store find --- a beautiful quilt - with lots of wear left in it for only $12!!!!! There's absolutely no way I could beat that price and still make a quilt to my liking - so of course I bought it.
I went on-line and looked "high and low" for some that I liked (and would half way match) but couldn't find anything that suited me for under $34 a piece!
THEN I came upon this ruffled pillow tutorial from JCD and fell in love!
Not only did I already have the material on hand, but I also had a free afternoon (after school) to "whip" them up!
So happy with how they turned out --- I even made a little round throw pillow to match!
Now I won't have to be embarrassed to put guests up in my room come November!
