Max & Whiskers and Camille...what a fun combination!
I bought Camille's book last fall and have been ohhing and ahhing over it ever since. I have a long-distance friend who is undergoing chemo and I wanted to make her something to help keep her warm, snuggly and wrapped in love during her long chemo treatments. Because my quilting time is very limited due to surgery I needed to find something that I could do and make it a little more creative than straight blocks...which is what I usually do in a pinch...not saying that is bad, but sometimes I like to think I can do more. Enter Camille's book Simplify and the pattern Coming Home...easy peasy, one charm pack, some Kona white and the blocks were cut, sewed and ironed in less than 4 hours! I haven't selected the outer boarder yet, want to wait until all the blocks are sewn to decide what I want to do. Although this pattern is a topper size, I think it will be perfect to cover her while she sits and waits to have that horrible life saving medication enter her body. I will post final pictures when done, but for today, this was a huge accomplishment for me. I go back to work on Thursday so I am cherishing these last few days.
