This is the fabric for the quilt I am working on now. It is going to be a wedding gift for some friends who are getting married in May. Paul is standing up in the wedding. (They don't know about my blog, so I am safe posting about it.) They are a pretty modern couple and have lots of black and white photography in their living room, so I wanted a simple, modern quilt with clean lines. I know they like to cuddle under blankets while watching movies, so this is probably going to have a soft microfiber back, either black or white, not sure which. If I do black, I will have to put a batting inside to keep my white true on the front. That would make this a really heavy blanket, but they live in Chicago so that would be fine.
This is the quilt laid out on our bed. It's very wrinkled as it spent an uncomfortable night all balled up in a chair. (We had some company and the kids were playing hide and seek last night, and the quilt got knocked off the table and "put away" by one of the boys.) Gar! Maybe it will unwrinkle a bit if I leave it like this for a while. Acutally, the more I see it there, the more I like it. The quilt I have started for our room is made from a Swell jelly roll and some vintage fabric, but I like the black and white, too, now... hmmm....
The words above the bed are from Pier One and were supposed to say "Live Laugh Love". I thought for the bedroom that just the word "Love" was appropriate. (Some days not so much...) This room is still a WIP, as I have to finish our quilt and make a bedskirt and pillow shams and such, but I have some other projects to finish first. The quilt top is made but it's gigantic and I am afraid to quilt it. It is the one I posted about here: http://gitdownkitty.blogspot.com/2009/01/so-as-it-turns-out-they-can-be-too-big.html
(I'm not allowed to do much on here today, it seems- like link inside the word or move pictures!)
The lamp in the corner is from Goodwill and I LOVE it. Paul hates it because it's so girly, but it's on my side, so he will just have to deal with it. I let him hang his stupid deer antlers on his side. Which I believe is called a "compromise" or something like that. (Silly concept if you ask me.)
