For Christmas I will be making a quilt for the girls, and for a while I was dragging my butt when it came to choosing fabrics. Picking out colors that I like, and that go together, and wondering if I will like them when they come in the mail/if they even look like they do on the computer screen, or worrying that I will be "over them" by the time I make the quilt....it's all very stressful. Lol.
The star wars fabrics were already here, but I wanted solids to go with them. It took a while for me to decide on these colors, but I finally did it....so hopefully I like them. Lol.
It's going to be a very girly star wars quilt! I'm really liking peach right now, and I like how it looks with yellow and gray/blue. Clover is all about the pink, and I knew there needed to be pink in the quilt, but I couldn't bear the idea of Barbie pink soiling the awesomeness of the Star Wars quilt. Plus, I have to look at it all the time. Peach seemed like a good compromise.
My plan is to do a simple triangle quilt top of some sort, half square triangles maybe. And scraps thrown together haphazardly at the last minute will likely make up the back. I've got a "full" sized cotton batting that I picked up for 50% off a while ago (the only way I can afford cotton batting!) waiting to be used.
Clover knows that I'm making them a quilt, and even hovered around while I was picking out fabric, so she is expecting something to come in the mail. Unfortunately I think she expects it all to arrive finished and ready to use : s
My hope is that we can use the quilt for our "circle time" in the morning, snuggling on the couch, and sitting outside reading in the spring. Maybe by then Violet won't only want to run away from me every time I take her outside. Sometimes mothering is really exhausting.
