Ever since I made this quilt for my brother and his wife as a wedding present late last year, I have wanted one for me and Chris. I needed a little break from quilting/patchworking after making it though, as this one was a pretty intensive effort. From cutting to completion was about 4 days- and it was queen sized, albeit rather large squares, tied and the simplest design possible.
But now I feel ready. I purchased quite a bit of fabric from www.fabric.com in preparation for it, but I have actually decided to only use 2 of the 6 or so I bought, favouring some vintage sheets I bought on holidays. I think I will do the same pattern as the last one- the checker board deal- as it is simple and I like that. I bought a chenille bedspread on ebay yesterday, so I am going to back it and tie it in the same way. Can't wait to get started. Might even start cutting tonight. Probably won't be finished in 4 days though.
