I love a good to-do list. The satisfaction of ticking things off and feeling productive.
I’m a big list person and I even do that silly thing of adding things I’ve already done just so I can cross them off and feel better. Yes, yes, I know!
Anyway, top of my list of things I want to do before we pack up and leave is use up my fabric stash. I’ve got big pieces that I bought for projects that never materialised and small scraps leftover from rare bursts of creativity.
So it’s time to put them all together and have a memento of our time in Denver. I was thinking of making one for the kids but that will only end in arguments when they’re old enough to fight about things like that. Instead, it’s going to be our family quilt that will live in whichever living room we find our lives revolving around.
I’m thinking stripes. Here are a few ideas I’m pondering:
I like the backing on this one from s.o.t.a.k handmade
Mine will probably have a random color scheme like this one from Sarah‘s flickr stash
This one from Film in the Fridge has patches and stripes – too ambitious?!
With Glastonbury to entertain me on TV, I’m going to have a wild and crazy friday night cutting my fabric and planning my stitchery. Rock n roll!
