Alternate title: I guess I’m gonna have to make the bed every day now, huh?
I’m making a quilted bed scarf. It’s a nine patch variation I’m calling the Argyle Nine Patch; it probably has an official name somewhere, but I don’t know it and couldn’t find it.
I’ve been hoarding fabric from Moda’s Etchings collection forever. And I mean forever; they don’t print that fabric anymore. I was lucky enough to find some of it on clearance at Hancock’s of Paducah recently. So I have quite a stash of it; I’ve been saving it for something special and this is it.
I love this fabric.
I’m going to quilt it by machine. I haven’t decided if I’m going all out FMQ or if I’m doing straight lines with a walking foot. We’ll see when I get a little further along. Right now, I’m still cutting out fabric.
After I’m finished with this bed scarf, I’m going to expand the size a bit and make a whole quilt in the same pattern using fabric from my three Butterfly collections at Spoonflower: Butterflies on Blue, Butterflies on Yellow, and Butterflies on Gray. (I’m still working on those collections… more designs, a free quilt pattern, and a notice of when it’s all complete, probably this Autumn or Winter.) So busy!
