In a dual attempt to use up some of my leftover bits of fabric and keep warm now that winter is fast approaching, I decided to have a go at making a quilt to live on the back of the couch.
The front is just squares, that I cut out and then spent far too long arranging in a ‘random’ pattern, and the back is navy flanelette, to make it warmer than if i had just used cotton.
I had my first nap under it the other day – it’s v cosy!
Sewn 23rd March – 11th April 2009
