My parents gave me a sewing machine about a year and a half ago and after several small projects I have decided to take on a big project: a quilt. I’ve been putting it off ever since I got a quilt book and did the math on exactly how much fabric you need to make a queen-size quilt. Apparently you can’t just sew two pieces of fabric together and call that a quilt. And did you know there’s a back to the quilt? You have to make the back look nice even though no one will ever see that. So it was a bit of an investment – but not as bad as it could be since I had a gift card left over from Christmas (thanks Nana!).
I have been wanting to do a grey, yellow and white color scheme and then found out that it is a very “in” combination right now – not just for home decoration but for weddings this year too. So I wasn’t going to do it anymore but then I realized that by the time I finish it, grey, yellow, and white won’t be as popular. The finished quilt is this pattern:
I’m making mine a little bigger so that it can actually be used on a queen bed. The fabrics in the first picture will be the little rectangles and they will be framed by a solid light grey fabric. The background of the whole quilt will be white. Mine will never be on the ground like this. So we’ll see how this goes – after the money I spent on it I will definitely be finishing it!
