Boring Beige Quilt
I wanted to keep this one simple- mainly because the size of it overwhelmed me (king size quilt) and because in 10 years time I still wanted it to be in fashion. The blocks are 6 inch squares in beige/white colours. After I had pieced to top I decided to have the quilting done elsewhere becuase I thought a floral stitch might look nice and I did not think I would fit the quilt under my sewing machine to quilt 'in the ditch'. It cost me about $250 to get the quilting done and while I like it I actually think I would have prefered it to be 'in the ditch'. Once I added up all the costs the quilt came to about $500. Gulp! I think I will stick to cot size from now on.
