Is That Your Final Answer?
Remember, back in January when I was having difficulty deciding on a quilt pattern to make me Mum a quilt for her bed? Well, I thought I had it all figured out. I wrote about it here. I even made a practice block to make sure I could get out of that jelly roll all the blocks I would need. Yet, here the fabric strips sit...
Aren't they pretty?
I haven't done anything else. Why? Well, I had no clue. Until now. Lately, me Mum has been talking about getting a twin bed. Though the quilt I was going to make would look okay on a twin bed, I had designed the top to fit a double bed. It would look okay on a twin. In my opinion, just not as good as the size it was designed for. Know what I mean?
So. I am going back to one of my original ideas. I am going to make a postage stamp quilt.
Remember this one I finished in September of 2011?
I love this quilt...it is so comfy and old-fashioned looking. My sister, Jill, took one look at it and had to have it.
I also made this one, though it's not finished...
I think a postage stamp quilt will be perfect for me Mum...and it won't matter what size bed she has.
Though I have a few other things I need to work on right now, I am going to try to get this started this weekend!
