|Somehow – I’ve got to tidy up for bedtime!|
You can probably get medication and therapy for quilting addiction! I have the loveliest reason to be stuck in at home looking after a four legged friend who’s come to stay and the weather is over cast so there’s every reason to stay in and make your beloved a quilt! He makes my bed a lovely place so why not make him a lovely quilt! This one is going to be the biggest quilt I’ve ever made a 3 metre by 3 metre quilt that will drape over our bed and will fall to the floor. I’ve bought ready cut material for this and yes, it will cost an arm and leg but I’m convincing myself that I’m making a family heirloom that I will hand down through the generations.
I do have a problem though, all the quilt basting and calico and lengths of material are all in inches and I just don’t ‘get’ them. So – each strip is 4.5 cm and 110 cm wide! I’ll have stripes running across the width of the bed and then stripes running around the outside. Quilting it will be complicated and will take a lot of love to finish. I have three pairs of doggy eyes keeping guard whilst I quilt away.
The only frugal thing about quilting is every stitch is stitched with love and that doesn’t have any cost!
