Default One for my bed

Why does it take so long for a quilter to put one on her own bed? After 10 years of quilting I finally have a top for mine. Will be stopping at LQS to pick up batting and backing today. I think the pattern for the block is a tube quilt. I got the idea from Missouri Star Quilt Company; don't ya just love their videos. Anyway here it is in browns and blues hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

BEAUTIFUL!!!
I think we quilt for others to practice and find the perfect pattern for our own bed. When ready it will be build to your personality, taste and you will not be tired of seeing it after just a couple of weeks....well that is how I feel regarding a quilt for my own bed :-D

Glad you have made one for yourself. Ten years is to long to wait. Beautiful job, looks like it will be just what you need, A NEW QUILT FOR YOUR BED!
