After a short period of doubt in the middle, I now love this, and it has given me so many ideas for how I want to finish the whole quilt when it’s done. The piecing is just the beginning; there’s a world of embellishment detail boiling away in my brain, and I fear some of it involves metallic quilting thread… There isn’t much doubt that this item is going to be way, way OTT.
The finished size is going to be about 65 x 48″; it will be too small for a bed, and in any case, all the beds in my house are already fully burdened with quilts and to spare. I will not be able to bear giving it away. So it will have to be a hanging. And I have a real problem with where it might hang in this small house with already too many pictures and bookcases.
Still, that’s a problem for another day.
