Go me, exorcising my Scandinavian Christmas urges without spending money, AND stashbusting at the same time.
I somehow have finished a 60×48 quilt top in three days, with a cranky baby who is not eating or sleeping well. I curated fabrics from my stash, lots of things I had lying around, that I bought saying to myself “this is so unlike me, what will I ever do with this?” Somehow, all those bits go with each other, and voila.
Colors are red and white and taupe. Motifs are stars, snowflakes, mushrooms, faux handwork, and a couple of florals that look Gustavian to me even though I have no idea what Gustavian actually looks like.
I can’t even tell you what lines these fabrics come from. When I’m buying random fat quarters, I don’t pay attenion. They are all old though, probably hard to find.
Statistically, my quilt tops are unlikely to become finished quilts. But I keep eyeing THIS when I think about finishing this one…
