I have done several swaps with internet friends and often receive little fabric gifts from fellow quilters. As a result, my stash has a group of novelty prints which I had never actively collected. When I saw your online workshop I thought it was an interesting concept and wanted to see how it would work - plus I'd use up some of these novelty prints that have accumulated!

Once the class started, of course I realized that my meager stash could not, in and of itself, supply the variety needed for this quilt, but that's not a problem! Any excuse to buy fabric is fine with me! So I started looking at fabric with different eyes and really enjoyed looking for more fabrics to swap with the Sweet Dreams class.

So the quilt was made with no one person in mind, but as a fun project. At the present time I have no little children to give it to (mine are teens) and so I'm having fun just showing it to people: family, my quilting guild, it was hanging in the store where I work for a while and now it's hanging in our guild quilt show. Someday the quilt will find a home with some child - or maybe I'll save it for future grandchildren!

Thanks again, Ami, for the class! It was lots of fun!
