I am liking this pattern, but I don't know if I like it enough to sew another 11 pieces this size ( that would be 396 4.5-inch sections!) plus a border or two. That is what it would take to make a king-size quilt to fit my bed. Once all that was done, I would still have to hand quilt it all.
I tossed this atop the quilt on my bed so you could get a better idea of what I am talking about.
As you can see, I need a lot more. I know I would be totally bored having to make the same thing over and over and over. So I am going to play around with it a bit longer to see if I can come up with a totally different pattern to go around this center. . . kind of like the "Roses are Red, Borders are Blue" quilt that is already on the bed. It has a number of different borders.
Yes, we quilters do name our quilts.
After all we work longer on making a hand-quilted bed covering than it takes to give birth to a child! So this spring when it's too cold to be in the garden, I will be trying to turn this little section of pieced fabric scraps into a new quilt for my bed.
