My free couch is so comfortable but so ugly and I’d like to have it recovered but I hate the curved back! Such an old lady couch, isn’t it? I’ve looked at new couches but all are too deep for me – my feet don’t even touch the floor!!!
Twenty windows in these two rooms and I have two bolts of fabric to make valances but that’s not as fun as a new quilt.
Here’s the quilt I saw on Etsy for $500 –
Here’s the first one I tried – I need different fabric. Oh, gosh, I’ll have to visit a quilt shop!!!
Working on plants every day and making progress – leaving the big ones for last.
And the border that got MANY of you involved enough to comment! I feel like I hit the jackpot!
I think I should issue a border challenge! You loved the Judy Martin border but like me, you’re always ready to start the next quilt and the border sounds boring. I guess we can all agree we need to take a step back and reevaluate – I don’t need any more quilts so why am I in such a hurry to move on?
One of the readers says she starts with a hoarded fabric she loves for the border and has to piece the center with coordinates. Might be a fun idea. Why, oh why, do we hoard fabric? I think it’s because we love the fabric so much that the quilt needs to be worthy of that fabric. I had a piece of our old Wear Warm Clothes fabric and I pieced it for the back.
Reader photos – I forgot where I left off so….
All that cleaning gives me a backache! I should go sit at my sewing machine, don’t you think?
