A long time ago (i.e. about 1,5 years) when I was just starting my sewing and quilting adventure, I had an idea to make a quilt full of waves. Then I discovered Kona cotton Poseidon bundle and I just knew I had to use it for the quilt. The design kept evolving from my mind, and although I still think the original one with a bit of a bank and trees will make it to a mini quilt one day, in the meantime I decided to make something simpler, better suited for a twin size quilt. And this year I finally felt skilled enough try sewing the quilt.
The one you see above is actually my second wavy quilt and here we come to the part why it is so special for me. I started with making a wavy quilt top for a quilt for my friend. When my Dad saw it, he said that he wanted such a quilt.
Now, although my Dad likes what I make, this was the first time he actually wanted something for himself, so you can imagine how happy I was.
And I didn't tell him I was making one for him until it was done, but my Mum and sister knew, hence the name not-so-secret quilt. And I know he likes it also because he didn't want anybody else to hold it while I was taking the photos.
