Make that 2 more! I won’t show any more EQ drawings. If you see anything else from this quilt, it will be as blocks on the design wall.
Mom saw the pictures and she liked #2 the best, which is this one:
I moved around some of the blocks, changed the first border and it’s now 87″ x 100″. That should be large enough for a queen bed, right? I don’t need it to cover the pillows but I want it to be plenty big enough.
It takes about 7 yards of the background fabric. I have this very light, mossy green that I love. Think it dulls the quilt too much? I like to use a background that is thick enough that the seam allowances don’t show through — not always easy with an ecru on ecru. And, I have to make it from the stash. I have the red because Mom bought that when I was in Louisiana but I have to come up with the rest of it. Yes, I could buy fabric but I’m loving the challenge of making quilts from my stash.
And, look at this! If anything will get my engine running, this is it!
I walked outside this morning in my typical stay at home attire – shorts, T-shirt and barefooted. I was rushing Speck to hurry up and get his business done because it was probably about 58 out there and the ground was wet. Certainly a welcome change from what we’ve been having. I’m ready to send summer on it’s way!
