    The Quilt I made and the Bed Frame Hubby Made...

    This quilt was made during the month of February right after I spent some time in the hospital in A-fib.
    I was angry that: it happened again, I ended up in the hospital again, and I was on meds again.
    Needing focus during this difficult time, I starting cutting into the stash...
    1,013 colored squares
    1,012 white squares
    2,025 total squares
    They were cut at 2 1/2 inches and arranged across 45 x 45 down

    The quilt is displayed on the new wooden bed frame that Hubby made. We found the pattern online and made a few alterations. It's nice and tall, painted black then antiqued, and I love it!

    And to let you know, I am now off my meds and have found my way back from anger and life is back to the way it was...

    Wow, to both of you! You both did something wonderful. I doubt I would do something like this when I'm sick. But I commend both of you for your strength.

    So glad you are feeling better. Hospitals are never a fun place to be.
    Both the quilt & the bed frame look great together. You & your husband
    are very talented.
