A year or two ago I bought some lovely simple blue and grey fabrics at a delightful little quilt shop somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Switzerland. They are German fabrics, but I have about as much chance of remembering the name of the producer as I have of remembering the name of the shop – is this old age setting in? My memory is shocking these days.
The plan was really to make a large bag with the fabric, but you know me: why make a bag when you can make a quilt? So over the last couple of weeks I’ve whizzed this little thing together out of 4 inch squares, backed it in Ikea words fabric and quilted it very simply in the ditch. Probably the easiest quilt it’s possible to make. It fits perfectly in my bedroom and is right in line with my move to live a simpler life.
It has made me very happy.
Both in the making and in the having and using.
(It’s small by the way – just sits ontop of a double duvet, with no room to drop down the sides of the bed).
