I AM SOOOO... OVER THIS WEATHER!

REMEMBER ME?
SO.....

When the weather turns cold my mind either goes to cooking or quilting.
Today it's quilting. Not that I don't have enough or anything,
grandma's, great grandma's, mine....
I'm not really a quilter, I'm more of a piece-r.
I can design, cut, piece, just can't quilt.
By the time I've sewn all those little
squares together I'm ready to be done.
For me the easy way is best, strands of embroidery floss
knotted every foot or so, to hold everything together,
some edge binding and I'm good to go.

I NEED A BACK

NOT QUITE DONE




(The pinkish fabric used to be curtains.)
At this point I can either add something in between
the front and back or just leave it with no middle.
Summer quilt versus winter quilt.
Back is going to be a sheet I snagged for $3.00 at Wally World.
Quilt batting for a queen size bed is about $15.00.....HUMM...
Perhaps an old blanket instead?
I've even see faded comforters at the thrift shop...
Go for the summer quilt?
What to do, what to do?
Perhaps you have some suggestions?

Till next time,
Bonjour

To me, a quilt is not a quilt without batting. But I live in the North, so maybe without would be okay for you on most days.

Whatever you decided to do -- you did a fantastic job on the quilty. Love the color combination -- very unique. :)

I wish I could do as much as you have done here. It looks sort of summery, so maybe a summer quilt.-Inger

Thanks, Maybe I'll do a winter quilt, I don't know, I can't decide.
