I typically don't like really girly colors and patterns so I'm not sure what inspired me to buy these fabrics but I have to say, I love this quilt.I used a vintage sheet that I found at Goodwill for the backing and all the quilting is hand-stitched (Can I use that as the reason it took so long to finish?) When I was pregnant with Matthew (19 years ago) I handmade a smaller "Heart" quilt. It was a little girly but somehow ended up as Matt's quilt. He loved that quilt to the point of it being tattered and threadbare but he used it daily right up until he left for college (I had to tell him that it wouldn't be such a good idea to bring it with him.) And since I hadn't made one for Sebastian, he naturally wanted this one...despite it's girly-ness. (I, however, wanted it for myself.)So I picked up all these "boy-ish" fabrics over the summer and bribed Sebastian into letting me keep the girly quilt as long as I made him one with these. I don't have a pattern so I'm just going to wing-it. I'll let you know how it turns out...a few summers from now! =)
It's just me and Sebastian tonight...we're going to eat Pizza then I'm going to watch a scary movie...by myself. (you know, cuz it's almost Halloween...in 38 days or so). Hope you all have a great weekend!
