What does a $3,800 quilt look like?
What does a $3,800.00 quilt look like? Well, here’s how it starts…. You need six colours for the pattern, a good choice for the border, and a back to finish it.
A wonderful coworker, Nancy, who became an even more wonderful friend was retiring and I wanted to make her a quilt. The pattern “Trip Around the World” is a quick one to put together and we found fabrics that just suited her. It quickly became a 45” x 50” throw.
She was surprised when she opened it and loved it. Here it is all finished, but the story doesn’t end here.
She used it in a couple different rooms before deciding on buying new furniture all picked out around the quilt colours! This included a couple of chairs in saddle (brown) and the sofa is an oatmeal shade which really makes the quilt stand out. And now their nest is complete!
We may start adding a disclaimer “If you spend over $3,000 on new furniture because of our quilts, WE'RE NOT RESPONSIBLE!" :-)
Seriously, so happy it’s being used and loved!
