I started a quilt for Miss K last year. I’ve never quilted before. It doesn’t really interest me the way sewing clothing does. I prefer instant gratification and quilts take for-ev-er.
So I started K’s quilt in February of 2016. I finished the top quite fast and was so pleased with myself. And then the top sat and sat and sat. Miss K begged me to finish it, then harassed me, and finally pleaded with me.
So this year March I decided to finish it.
*It has to hang sideways on the clothes line to fit*
*The Quilt pattern is free on RileyBlakeDesigns.com; This one is called “Free To Dream” by Lori Whitlock. When I started the quilt Miss K had a queen bed. By the time I went to finish it she had a twin bed so I decided to leave off the borders to make the quilt smaller.
*There are some of my favorite fabrics in this quilt by Riley Blake. I have parts of “Saltwater” in here “Modern Minis,” “Vintage Market,” and “Little Red Riding Hood.” Tasha Noel is one of my favorite fabric designers.
*I decided on a simple diagonal quilted pattern* The backing fabric matches her walls perfectly! And it wasn't even planned!
I love how it turned out. Miss K loves it to pieces which makes it even better.
I still find quilting boring and time consuming; however I love the end result. I’ve already started another quilt for the Living room. Let’s hope it takes me less than a year to complete!
