It's Like it was Another Lifetime Ago
So my husband calls to say let's go eat out, and get some paint samples for the bedroom. I had a vision of the bedroom that involves a blue that matches a quilt I had started long ago. I was not even sure I wanted the quilt anymore, but still wanted the color palette. I went digging in the sewing bins in the basement to find the fabrics. Once I found them, I was amazed! I had finished 25 blocks! How had I gotten so far, yet never finished??? I think the reason I did not finish it was because I had used all my main fabric, but did not have enough blocks to make it the size for a queen sized bedspread like I had originally planned.
I recently bought a new white textured bedspread, so this quilt would just be more folded on the end of the bed and pulled up in the winter for extra warmth. I am sure to the quilter's among you the fabric and the pattern are quite dated, but I still love them, so I am going for it!!
This whole cleanup process is a bit like an out of body experience. We look through shelves of books or long hidden boxes and wonder who was this person that bought this or put it in this box? I know that these quilt blocks were started in a class, but I have absolutely no recollection of being in this class, how long ago it was, or even where I took the class. It's like it was all another lifetime ago...
