She wanted the fabric. Not even a quilt. "Just sew an edge on it and I will spread it on my bed!"
Yeah, like that was gonna happen.
She's getting a quilt. Perhaps not as full-blown as I would like - after all, one of the issues I had with this fabric is that it's such a large print with so many colours. It's either going to completely dominate, or get cut into teeny-tiny pieces.
I chose to let it completely dominate, and to add in some blocks that I've had in the works since, oh, gosh, it might be as far back as 2006? My friend Bec got married and I have her and her hubs a wedding quilt. I'm not even sure I have the original photo anywhere!
Oh wait, I do!
But that pink and dark gold fabric? That was originally the red-and-gold blocks in here:
The column fabric down the sides is another harvest fabric I bought - actually, it's the one I used in the Jacob's Ladder.
I don't like this design, but my aunt was very insistent about "oh, don't do anything with it" but I can't leave it plain - I know some people do wholecloth quilts with beautiful quilting, but that's not really me. Quilting is design and layout and colour and pattern and tricking the eye.
