Even though work was determined to keep my weekend full, the hubs and I decided to enjoy a few hours of fall outside. We grabbed a few iced coffees (bad life choice), quilts, and books to spend some quality time with each other and the changing leaves. I can’t describe how much I LOVE fall. Love it.
What you don’t see in this photo is that we spent a lot of the time outside fighting over the quilt. Y’all, the Chicopee Stripes quilt is a lap-sized quilt. It’s great when I’m on the couch by myself. However, the hubs was not amused when we couldn’t cover our backs and our feet. hahaha. He also wasn’t amused that I tucked the quilt in under my body. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
My mom also got wind of a new project I am going to start this weekend, and she said that I wasn’t allowed to start another project until I finished a quilt I started this summer. And even though I’m 28 and a grown adult, I listened to her. Now probably more than I did when I was 16. She’s always right.
I’ve been holding off on quilting this bad boy because I couldn’t decide on a quilting pattern. I was making this quilt way more complicated than it needed to be, and the hubs came to the rescue. He told me I needed to keep it simple because the quilt itself is simple. Now that I’ve quilted this I couldn’t agree more with his vision. Plus, it was super easy and fast. I was a little paranoid to use the little blue pen, but it all came out in the wash. YES, I washed my quilt! Why have I not been doing this all along?
So, now I am free to start more projects that will look like a quilt designed by me and some Christmas stockings. Who knows if either will be successful, but I’m excited!
