Drunk Love

You might think I’m writing about my feelings for my DH, but that’s not really the point today. It’s about great projects that I need to get started on.

Annzy hipped me up to a great quilt pattern called Drunk Love by Denyse Schmidt. I love it! Annzy, of course, has already made this one and two or three others in the time it’s taken me to decide that I can make a queen size quilt. Actually, it’s totally within my abilities. It’s just one of those projects that are big enough to be intimidating.

The DH and I sleep under a feather comforter in the winter, but as soon as it starts to get over 40 degrees at night, it’s just too hot. We need something lighter weight and I’m a stickler for matching.

I got the DH to accompany me to his not-so-favorite store, JoAnn’s, where we picked out 4 reds. I hope you find them as delightful as I do. I really like them and can’t wait to see how this shapes up. Wish me luck!

It looks good so far ~so nicely pressed and ready to be cut out ~just remember 12 layers is too many to cut out at once and I have the scar to prove it.

Ha! Ha! Dan hates the fabric store, too, and he has since he was a child. Everytime I've asked him to go he gets this sick look on his face and just like he probably said when he was eight he whimpers "Come on, do I have to?"

I made it tolerable for the DH by first choosing red as the color (a color he actually likes) and then letting him pick at least one of the fabrics (of course, after I rejects six or eight of his picks). The bottom one in the picture is his pick and his favorite. I'm not sure if you can tell, but it's roses. I prefer the live kind.
