This quilt is nearly done! And it will be finished in under a week. Here’s why – I caved in and started with a perfectly lovely sage green albeit purchased (read completed) quilt. Here’s my rationale. Unless I can somehow get my hands on a longarm, I can’t see myself making a king-sized quilt. With two children, two puppies, a full-time job, laundry and 5 other quilts I’m working on, I need to be realistic. This is a perfectly lovely quilt, 100% cotton with one of my favorite greens, already quilted in a very nice Chrysanthemum motif, on sale at Target for nder $50. And like the cobbler whose children have no shoes, my bed was missing a quilt made by me. I’m calling these peacock colors. It’s all greens and blues. I can’t wait to show you the completed quilt and a wrench has been thrown into the whole situation by Henry, the boy puppy who chewed my sewing machine cord. (I’ll be dealing with HIM later.)
More pictures soon of this quilt and the pink, red and aqua quilt for the girls. It’s going to be really fun sewing all those half square triangles together.
