A few weeks ago I picked up a quilt top for $5 at a garage sale.
I nearly left it there because it was not super exciting fabric wise, but for $5 I couldn't leave it. While I was waiting for fabric for the leaf quilt to arrive I decided to actually quilt it. It was super wonky and I wasn't sure it would work it out.
But it turned out pretty fab!
Bonus points for being such a quick project. Should I happen upon any more cheap but perhaps not collection worthy quilt tops I will be buying them. Easiest way to a finished quilt ever.
It had this one odd block in pink. The rest of the blocks are so masculine.
I am trying to bust my stash a bit so as I was digging around I found a huge amount of this vintage fsbric I bought thinking I might make curtains. It has awesome pink houses on it. I thought the pink houses were a fun nod to the lone pink block.
As soon as grant spotted the trains he decided this was his quilt. It was already for him anyway. :)
No quilt of mine is complete without polka dots!
Jack is asking for a new quilt (even though he never, ever uses his...hmmmm.) and I am chewing on a few ideas for another male. Maybe there are more masculine quilts to come before Christmas? First the tree skirt though!
