A quilt of my own
I started this quilt 4 -5 years ago intended as a gift for somebody. Eventually I realized that it was long past time that I needed to just buy a present already for their life event, and I decided this quilt was for somebody else. That never happened either. Last winter it was a functional quilt, missing a binding and with minimal quilting. I started using it on my bed during a cold snap, exposed batting edges and all. Finally, sometime last spring I added binding and declared this quilt Mine. After making maybe two dozen quilts ranging from lap quilts to a queen size, this is the first one that I am keeping for myself.
Of course it is. Blue and green and blue-green leftovers from my stash on the front and soft flannel pieces on the back, it represents the colors that I gravitate to over and over. (I have over-corrected since then and now have an excess of vibrant pinks.) The picture isn’t particularly true to life in the specific colors, and it is still accurate. Blue. Green. Blue-green.
