Well, I finally got this done! It measures a whooping 96" x 108", and has amazing Hobb's Wool Batting. I am not completely daft, I realize that our bed is only queen size. The problem is that Treasure likes to roll up like a burrito, and I like to have only my nose poking up out of the top of the covers. Top that off with our room being the coldest in the house, and you begin to understand why we were sleeping under three quilts and a blanket. Needless to say, the bed is much easier to make now!
Most of the fabric is from Heather Baileys Fresh Cut line. Sadly to say, I started this quilt so long ago, that most of it is from the original run of the fabric. You know the quilt should be finished when the re-print is hard to find!!! Of course it would have been nearly impossible to quilt without my Juki.
Had to push all the clutter to the side to show you the room! Needing to start the Spring cleaning. You may spot a cobweb or two. Did spruce up the quilt rack with my Tutti Fruity Quilt.
So glad I had enough yardage to make some matchy pillow cases.
My baby blanket still hangs on my wall. I need to move it over a little. My new curtains hang over farther. Unfortunately that means I have to buy paint to patch the wall....blurg. The shelf holds odd bits of memories.
On another wall I have hung up the quilt that Treasure and I used to
fight over sleep with. I still love Rainy Days and Mondays, made so long ago.
In case anyone is interested in the wool batting, Treasure and I both agree it is the best! Last night we slept with a sheet, blanket and this quilt. So much lighter than the metric ton of quilts we are used to sleeping under. Usually my feet are so cold by the time I go to bed that it takes an hour or so to warm up enough to sleep. I was warm in mere minutes, but didn't get overly hot. Treasure said it was the best sleep he had in a long time. I've used this batting before in a quilt for my Mother-in-Love, but this is the first one I have kept. It quilts like butter!
