Because obviously I don't have enough projects on the go right now, I decided when I was fabric shopping last weekend that what I urgently need in life is a sewing room quilt, I was inspired by the gorgeous sewing themed fabric that I recovered my sewing room lampshade in, I like to imagine myself cwtched under this quilt whilst hand sewing or knitting.
I was also inspired by this blog post on Posy Gets Cozy about speed making a quilt sewn from strips of fabric. I liked the idea of a quilt coming together so quickly (my other WIP quilt is currently timing at about 10 months and counting) so I followed the method of choosing fabrics quickly, not worrying too much about my choices, just going with what I like which is so unlike me.
I bought 10cm strips of each fabric, didn't even bother to straighten the cutting when I got home, which has resulted in a slightly wonky quilt in places but who cares? I certainly wouldn't show any of my quilts to an avid quilter, but they make me happy and even happier still when this quilt is finished, quilted and edged all within just over a week of having bought the fabric. Definite new record!
