    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

    Beautiful fabrics!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Nice! I just finished and put one on my bed 2 days ago and I love it! My mom & husband finally forced me to do it and I'm so glad I did! This one will be doing dual duty, it matches our RV perfectly, so will be going with us when we travel as well. Now on to a lap quilt, buffet runner, & placemats to match...sometime soon.
