Messy Summer Bed
August 11, 2011 § 25 Comments
I’m loving our messy Wild Geese summer bed at the moment. I just wish I had made this quilt a smidge bigger. It doesn’t quite cover our semi-new extra deep mattress. But it’s good for the summer months when a warm down comforter isn’t needed.
So on that Quilt-Along note… I’ve been thinking about what to do next. It’s not likely that anything will be decided before September. But that will give us all winter to work on something, right?
I was browsing through some of my books with antique quilts. I’m not sure that I’ve found “the one” just yet. There is also a book at work that has some interesting options. I’ll have to bring my camera to work and take some more photos when I get a chance.
I’m really intrigued by these sampler quilts that seem to be made up of leftover blocks. It’s been in the back of my mind to do something like this sooner or later.
And I am in love with giant blocks! (different border) This block is pretty similar to the Swoon quilt that so many folks have been working on. Except it’s scrappy. And I do love scrappy! I really like the block within a block concept too.
And then there are always more medallion quilts. But I feel like we’ve already been there and done that. Hmmm. What do you think? While you are pondering on that, I am working on a tutorial for the Composition Notebook Cover. Since it’s back to school season and all…
