One of my resolutions this year was to spread a little more kindness through gift giving. I'll admit - the first few months of the year got away from me! How is it March already? Regardless, I'm ready now! A good friend of mine is having a birthday this week and I wanted to make her a little something. Side note...Do you find it challenging to sew gifts for people that also love to sew? I find myself doubting my simpler ideas just because I know that she could so easily make that herself. But that's not the point is...

I had so much fun making this quilt from our Strip Quilt instructions. I loved that I was able to start and finish it in just one evening.
