…..goes the little mantra that pops in my head every now and again. It is like the ticking of a clock – the beat to the rhythm of the day ahead. The day could be filled with the usual house cleaning and chores OR it could be spent doing something totally fun – like making a quilt!!
The other day I spotted the current issue of Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork & Quilting on the shelf at my local grocery store. The cover caught my eye – totally cute quilt – and it says “SIMPLE CONSTRUCTION.” Ok, says who?
Looks simple enough, right? Straight cuts, row by row construction, straight stitching. Sounds good to me!
I have plenty of fabrics to pick from to make the quilt!
Shut the door…..
What do you think Fiona? Oh how I wish you could cut the strips for me!
Before we go, here is the information if you would like to order the kit for the quilt – or use up your stash like I hope to do. Note: The red and white quilt on my wall was made by my dear friend, Jean (http://www.inthegardenwithmissjean.blogspot.com/) It is my favorite quilt of all time! The lampshade was a purchase from Home Goods.
