I have asked a group of my very talented friends to share with me their 'current' favorite quilt in my 'Featured Friend' series of articles! Sara Lawsone is an awesome friend. I think of 'Who are you going to call' and her name pops into my head! Want to know ANYTHING about bag making, Sara, need a Coffee Mug from Chicago? Sara, want to find out who is who or what is what? She is it! This is a goosebump story, so you are warned!

This quilt has a back story, which made it an important quilt to me and my family for a long time. This quilt was for my daughter’s 5th birthday last year, which is in September. This is the first quilt that I made for her.
Tula Pink designed the quilt pattern. I decided to use purple and pink solids.I decided that I wanted to use a pink text on white background fabric, but upon google searching, I did not see anything available (but lots of white text on pink background!).
My friend Lisa Sipes longarmed the quilt. She did an amazing job ("nothing fancy" she says!!). It was quilted to white cotton sateen backing.
I am really a bit overwhelmed that so many friends had a ‘hand’ in making this quilt! It is very special for sure!
