Another afternoon....another pencil roll. This one for K9. He chose the leftover fabric from the backing of his quilt I made last year. That fabric he had seen and desperately loved - probably because it was the ONLY sporty-looking fabric in the store! As I unloved it just as desperately, I told him we'd use it for a quilt backing if it came down to $5 a metre (highly unlikely I thought!!!!). It was with some difficulty I stayed true to my word! I pretty much let him choose the fabrics for the front - though given totally free reign he'd have had a few more colours and even more soccer balls on red - YEEHA!
I didn't want to spend forever making this quilt so I did huge squares with just a little embroidery to make it special! With polarfleece backing and and unusual twist on a border (just down two sides), it is not a traditional quilt - I think that might end up the hallmark of my quilts! Nothing quite normal!
Another evening....yet another pencil roll.
M4 chose his favourite PJs, favourite sweatshirt and an old pair of dungarees. It is definitely more fiddly making things out of old clothes than just cutting into a nice new freshly laundered piece of cotton. But new fabric doesn't have the same memories!
