I have a very large basket of rolled quilt tops that are waiting to be made whole, given soft innards, so they can find someone who wants to snuggle with them, love them, and live happily ever after. Some of them have been waiting quite awhile. And as with everything else, I felt it was time I took a look at what I have and reassessed a little bit.
This morning, I pulled a somewhat small Civil War/1800s style quilt top out of the basket. I thought I might give it away, but as I looked at it on the design wall, I realized I kind of liked it--kind of alot, in fact. So I rolled it back up and put it back. Then tonight, I found this one:
It's made with Thimbleberries fabric and I won the partially completed blocks and some of the fabric at one of my Thimbleberries Club's raffles a couple years ago. I finished putting the top together, rolled it up, and stuffed it in the "to be quilted" basket.
And while I kind of like the quilt top, I have a lot more quilt tops I like more, so this one will probably languish in the basket for years and years. I decided, instead, so see if anyone wanted to offer it a good home. No, the cat is NOT included, but you will, no doubt, receive some of Spike's fur if you are lucky enough to win the quilt top. And, in the photo, it's on my daughter's double bed, so you can kind of judge the size.
Please leave me a comment if you live in the US or Canada, aren't allergic to cats, and would like to adopt this poor quilt top. I'll pick a winner--assuming I have some volunteers--on Thursday night (tomorrow) and post the winner on Friday's blog post. Anyone interested?
