Creativity Is Taking A Back Seat...Time For Some Repairs...
We had already chosen the colour scheme for this yet to be built room, and the fabric was chosen to compliment the navy/taupe colour scheme.
This quilt has been to Ottawa for Lucas' undergrad years and is now in Toronto with him as he studies Law. On the weekend he let me know that the quilt was starting to fall apart in places. I think it is the lack of heavy quilting since it was only 'stitched in the ditch' and it is such a well loved and well used quilt that limited quilting just couldn't stand up to the tough wear and tear of a teenager and now young man.
I offered to make a new quilt, but that was not well received. It seems Lucas really appreciates the fact that he is the owner of my first quilt and he has a lot of sentimental value attached to this. Repairs are under way! Perhaps after repairing it I'll add more quilting to see it that will add to it's longevity.
