Another quilt that captured my eye on the internet was this one - isn't it amazing? Great colours, and of course that straight line quilting again. So I gave it go, and did this thing.
Which is a big fat yawn from planet bland. It's deliberately askew - I consciously didn't try to make it straight because I knew I'd fail, but even if the execution was perfect it would still be a take it or leave it number. The straight line quilting isn't particularly difficult or time-consuming (although it might be if you wanted to do it properly), it's just BORING. And you end up with a boring quilt. The photo is terrible too - the camera really struggled to focus on it. It was probably too repulsed to focus.
The worst thing is that the density of the quilting makes it useless as a bed quilt! It doesn't drape, or bend or snuggle at all. So I called the stupid thing "Pointless" because that's what it is. Pointless. I quite like the pink and blue together, but that's it.
But, as with many of my pronouncements ("this quilt is useless!!!") I was proven wrong within about ten minutes by a boy and his cat, who think it is perfectly cosy. I will wash it a few times and see if it loosens up at all, and in the meantime it can see the winter out on the sofa.
