There are a limited number of quilts than one can really use. No really, there is a limit! In the interests of not overloading myself with soft furnishings I decided I should probably start making quilts for other people sooner rather than later. I asked around to see who amongst my family might be interested in receiving a quilt. My mother is definitely out, she has a very minimalist style and will almost certainly never want anything patchwork. My sister luckily was keen.
I didn’t plan quite far enough ahead for Christmas. I would have had loads of time to make a complicated quilt if it wasn’t for the fact that I was leaving for the Copenhagen protests two weeks before Christmas. Nine patch time!
Her bedroom at uni is all in black and white so I thought I should make something that fitted into the monochrome theme. Two packs of charm patches and one white sheet later, we have a quilt.
My family were impressed and she seems to like it which is the important thing.
