My wonderful son and beautiful daughter-in-law were married last Saturday and ... well, let me back up a bit ...
Shortly after they got engaged a year and a half ago I was planning to make a quilt for them. My new DIL is a beginning quilter who, unfortunately, learned from her "throw the rules out the window" MIL. She saw a pattern for a double wedding ring quilt and said she would love one of those. GULP! Never tried one and just looking at it made my head hurt. Maybe you'd like a nice Storm at Sea?
Fast forward to the end of October when Hurricane Sandy took our house and everything in it. That got me off the hook. Not the best way for it to happen but it got me off the hook.
Now, I'm feeling brave. I have the Accuquilt Go die for the pieces, but I'm not at all sure about where to go from here. They'll need a queen size and she loves blues and purples, and now has a taste for batiks (which I think will be hard to cut unless I use a gallon of starch). Then there's the back ground fabric. White? I'm so up in the air. But at least I have a year to finish it as it is planned for a first anniversary gift. That year will go fast unless I get moving!
Any ideas? I'm scared!!!
