Stay out of the sitting room

Stay out of the sitting room!

This quilt has taken over my life (and my home). It’s not the most practical of hobbies when you have a full-time job, a two year-old and a two-bedroom flat.

Oh, and can you see an ugly, small children’s armchair in the background that’s in desperate need of being re-upholstered? That’s a future project.

Better finish this quilt first, though.

  1. It sure does look nice! I understand. My quilts take up my bedroom floor for smaller ones, and for anything over 60″x60″, I have to annex the living room to my quilting grounds. Haha

    • This is my first one. I think my next one will be smaller. I should have started with a cot quilt to learn the basics, maybe, but I thought if I was going to spend months creating something, I wanted it to be something I could love forever. Can’t imagine getting to the point where I’ll be designing my own like yours. Maybe when I have a bigger place and can leave the blocks out for weeks while rearranging them.

  2. I
    f the chair is for Isaac I’d suggest the project isn’t too far in the future

  3. Another thing to spur me on to finish this quilt: if I don’t get it done soon, my boy will outgrow his ugly armchair…
