Anyway, I’m making a quilt for my nephew who has his confirmation later this month. He’s 14 and he really, really wants a quilt as his gift (I am not kidding). So I thoughts that even if I don’t have that much experience in making quilts for 14 years old boys... but 2+2 is 4 and he was bound to love the box-in-a-box quilt. I surely do…
I started making the blocks. A whole lotta of them. More than my design wall can handle obviously :)
I decided to separate each block with a black ‘n white polka dots print and bought 4 meters of polka dot fabric at the cost of $115 at my local quilt shop (yes, that is how much fabric costs here in Denmark)
And all was well until I saw this yesterday… Faith’s of Fresh Lemons Modern Quilts latest finish. Now I don’t know what to do. Her design will be much more suitable for a 14 year old boy than my original idea. But I have so many blocks ready. And of course I can pretend that $155 is nothing, It’s payday tomorrow and who talk’s about money anyway. Can 4 meters of polka dot fabric be considered as a long term investment?
Anyhow I turn this around, I find myself in a dilemma now. I can’t quite get the idea of front and back in opposite colors made after Faith’s design out of my head now. And I might just have to get some solids tomorrow….
