After looking around (alot) online, I decided a rag quilt would be the way to go... something quick and easy that I might just be able to manage considering I can't cut material straight!
In keeping with the shabby chic feel of my room, I've gone for pink, off white and a green rose fabrics.
Now after a lot of cutting (crooked squares!), sewing and then snipping of seams, I'm all finished.
I think the crooked squares add to the charm and the frays in the seams...
The back of the quilt is a pink and white check...
And after cutting out the pink and white squares I decided on a different pattern before I cut the green floral, so I had squares left over. I've made cushions with these squares and still have some material left over to make some more but I will wait until I get new chairs for the scraproom first.
I think I've done well for a first effort (but not sure if I will make any more!)
But yes, I can see me curling up under it on a cold winter night reading can't you?
