It’s been a bit of a joke with Amanda Jean, Anina, and me that instead of quilting along in the quilt-along Amada Jean has been hosting I’ve been quilting behind. Way behind. Like they all finished their quilt tops and I hadn’t started. But I was determined to do it. The flu/strep throat brought with it lots of urchins lying on the sofa watching TV which meant that I could cut all my patchwork pieces at the kitchen table. Then some quiet playing in the playroom and a solid nap from Tristan on Friday allowed me to sew all those pieces together. With twelve beautiful squares I find myself asking, now what?
Should I make a twin-sized quilt or maybe two crib-sized quilts? The fabric was one of those impulse buys at a quilt show sometime last year. They were all wrapped up and I just loved them so I bought a pack of half-yards. The thing is that while I do love pink and brown it does not go anywhere in my house. Right now I’m leaning towards the crib quilts — especially since Michael Miller makes matching flannels. What do you think?
