Several months ago a friend of mine saw a quilt that I was adding a sleeve on while we were in a meeting together.  She loved the quilt and wanted to know if I would sell it.  The answer was no because this quilt was already spoken for.  She asked if I would make her one "just like it".

Well, we all know that cannot happen if the line of fabric is more than a few weeks old.  I explained to her that I would have to research and see if I could come up with the fabric line.  If I could, then we could make a "similar" quilt to the one she just saw.

Of course, I started my search online.

I was able to find a fat quarter bundle of Moda's line called "Freebird" designed by MoMo.  Whew, that was great!!  I ordered the bundle and off we went to make the quilt.

Since the pattern "Lawn Chair Quilt" from Moda's Bake Shop called for a jelly roll, I had to cut the fat quarters into strips.  

The quilt is finished and ready to deliver to my friend/customer!!  It is not identical to the one she saw, but it does use the same fabrics.  I made sure that I did not refer to the original one while making   this one.  This one has a couple fabrics that are not in the other quilt and vice versa.

I hope she enjoys using this in her "cabin" in the woods!!

By the way, the original one was chosen as part of the BAQS Exhibit in Des Moines, Iowa for 2014 Quiltweek.
