A friend of ours wanted a special quilt for his wife for her birthday. She was also recovering from surgery. He specified that she liked unicorns, dolphins, and green and blue.
I used EQ to work on a layout and block size.

I had couple of yards of fabric with unicorns in the stash, so fussy cut some blocks from it. Made a trip to the quilt shops and of course there is no more of that fabric in the area, so opted to make some blocks with unicorn heads embroidered on them.
I finished the top and with only a couple of days to spare before the birthday, pieced a back for it with dolphin and tropical fish fabrics.

It really met all of his specifics!

This is a ‘quick turn’ quilt and it is tied, rather than quilted.

Using the quick turn technique also eliminated having to make binding for the finish.
