I've been fussing with some quilt designs for a project I'm working on, and frustration set in. I decided to organize a closet to clear my mind (spring cleaning time, you know) and I found this piece I picked up at a thrift store awhile ago. It was a window valance made from a sheet. I took it apart and started cutting. The roses are so large they begged to be large squares. I added a little kona snow, some blue and one square of gray and I had a quilt. It's about 50 x 70, perfect to snuggle under or to spread on the grass for an impromptu picnic.
Sometimes I tend to overcomplicate things and I forget simple can be beautiful, sophisticated, and satisfying.
