It is a really good thing I like the crinkly look since it helps cover up how awful my quilting is. I really hope to get better at it - someday.
Someone asked about the quilt on the end of the bed. The one hanging is one I purchased a long time ago (maybe 10 years?) I ordered out of Country Living magazine. When I bought it we were still sleeping in a full-size bed and I used it as the bed cover. When we bought the queen-size bed it would still work, but could stand to be a few inches wider. I still love it, so I hung it on the foot board! The yellow and blue quilt folded at the foot of the bed was given to me by a friend who no longer uses those colors in her home. I don't think there is anything between the top and backing. Sherry didn't make it, she had bought it when she had those colors in her home. I don't know if she has any idea how old it is or not - I'll have to ask her. Sometimes I swap them around and hang the yellow and blue one - just to be a little different! :)
Today I've been working on another gift - I'm doing some applique and it doesn't look any better than my quilting does. Maybe I should try hand applique and hand quilting - I do better with hand work than I do with machine work! I'm still debating if it looks too bad to give as a gift or if I should start over.
I think it is time for a chocolate break.
Have a great weekend!
