One of the people who had a major impact on me when I started quilting ten years ago was Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts. Her patterns are fun, well written and impactful. I looked forward to Lorna's regular blog posts, back in the day when I was actually good about following blogs and posting regularly myself. At the same time, I was falling in love with modern fabric designers and couldn't get enough Tula Pink in my modest fabric collection. Well, the stars aligned, Lorna published Sweater Weather using Tula's Holiday Homies line and I knew I had to make this quilt some day. Right before my local quilt store (Keepsake Quilting!) closed, I did something I'd never done and still is a first, bought the quilt kit.
