I offered to make a bed quilt for my son and his girlfriend for Christmas this year and showed them all sorts of different patterns that I'd have been happy to make. And what did they choose? Simple squares with a few appliquéd hearts! They liked a simple country look. Well, who am I to argue, so that's what I've made. Hundreds (480 to be exact) of squares in reds and blues, with a bit of white thrown in for good measure. I've decided to have this one long arm quilted, as it's so huge and I know I would make a bit of a mess of something that large if I tried to quilt it myself. I dropped it off at the shop yesterday and they've promised me that I'll get it back in time to finish the binding before Christmas.
Actually, I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out.
