So back at Christmas Time I promised Mr. Wonderful that I would make him a new quillow to replace the old tattered one that he loved so much. The one from his childhood. He loves the pocket that he uses for his feet. Really who wouldn’t? So what if he’s a grown man and has a blankie. Oh have I said too much? Dang! This could result in some marriage counseling or conversations on boundaries at the very least. Maybe I should stop now.
Anyway I finished sewing all the strips that I had cut out and guess what. It is neither long enough or wide enough. You see I’m not working from a pattern, I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal (sometimes). Who new that you would lose so much length in the sewing of the strips? I guess a real quilter would have. I have plans for the width, but now I have to get more material and add some length. Its no biggie, just requires more time. I also am not thrilled that this turned out to be a theme quilt. Neither Mr. Wonderful or I are theme people. Well anyway here is what I have so far.
Maybe I should just make this a baby quilt and start over with a less Nautical look.
