My quilt this time around is a queen sized bed quilt for my very own bed. You know the old tale of the shoemakers children going without shoes? Well, my dear hubby has been asking for a time for one of my quilts for OUR bed. *Of course, the pup had to get in on the action!*
I put it off for so long:
A. because we have moved SO much thanks to the Army
B. I couldn't decide on the appropriate colors
C. I don't love making large quilts
Now, we are settled though, and I had no more excuses. Our bedroom walls are a sagey green with white trim. Dh really likes more traditional fabrics and patterns so we decided together on the fabric line Glace by Moda. It's really a Christmas line, but really it had so few obviously Christmas prints that I knew it would be just fine.
Pattern is a disappearing 9 patch. Quick and easy!
The best part about this quilt, though, is that I had an opportunity to visit my sister over Spring Break and quilt this on her mid-arm. So fun! I made tons of mistakes, but it was so much easier than straining my muscles trying to quilt this on my home machine!
Have fun visiting all the quilts and blogs!
