Back in January, I mentioned that I was thinking of making my first quilt to go along with the new bedroom curtains that I made you look at in Heatherstone Curtains Revisited. I figured that if I promised right here on the blog to try quilt-making, I might have to follow through and actually do it.
Well, I did and am quite pleased with the results. Most of the fabrics came straight out of the scrap bag, and are a combination of the blues and greens I have always loved because I was born and grew up near the sea, together with some almost-blinding yellows and golds that I like to think of as Southwest-y.
Pity the poor English major, always looking for a theme...
I am showing you the quilt today in film-ish form because it is one of those objects better observed from the back of a galloping horse. In other words, it is filled with mistakes and puckers and if I limit your view of each photo, I am hoping that you won't have time to notice!
