Husband got a little chilly Monday night and pulled the This and That quilt from where I had casually laid it at the foot of the bed up over himself to keep warm. It’s now a used quilt, right? And that means it gets to stay. Right?
“The room looks a little eclectic,” he said.
Well, what does he expect?! A quilter with a very small budget lives here.
The white bedspread is our standard summer fare. During the winter it is a down comforter with a sort of tannish-gold duvet.
The center pillow with half-square triangles is the one I made with the bonus pieces from the quilt. The others are covered with fabric on hand that I “inherited” from some kind person–not quilting fabric. Almost a canvas.
The curtain panels were already here and the valances are another inexpensive sort-of-match. It isn’t what I might have if I had a million dollars, but, as I don’t have a million dollars, it is at least a fresh look.
And, another quilt has worked its way into our home. That makes, let’s see, four throw-size-or-larger quilts. Hmm…the dire prediction that the whole place might someday disappear beneath a pile of quilts is on its way to coming true.
