I decided, overnight, to make Strapping Young Lad a bed-sized quilt. He has several quilts in varying sizes that I've made him...but none that cover him and his bed entirely.
So I took my time designing a sampler quilt with blocks wrought with meaning, colors and fabrics chosen carefully to convey my message.
And I am taking my time with it to ensure that it is "Just right", but in the meantime I decided to throw together a different, very quick quilt for his bed. ( I have "overachiever" problems that I sometimes am able to squelch, but, alas, was unsuccessful this time...)
This is the pieced quilt backing for the Quick Quilt, which I like very much. I threw in fabrics that have personal meaning to me and will for Strapping Young Lad as well.
This is the quilt top. I used the Escapade pattern with the Posiedon fat quarter bundle from Rober Kauffman.
Sometimes I feel like all the stitching might swallow me up, when I'm working on a big quilt. My quick quilt became "less quick" when I decided to heavily quilt it. No matter,still chugging right along on it.
