One of my goals this year I haven’t mentioned is to sew a quilt. The idea actually began when I bought a duvet a year ago. It was a great deal and sooo fluffy–the only hitch is that it’s soooo hot. I mean it is invented for 30-degree weather kind-of warm. So I want to sew a light quilt to use in the summer.
I was also inspired after following Posie Gets Cozy, a lovely little blog centered around creating beautiful things. I am naturally not very crafty, but it’s something I would love to improve on. I signed up for a quilting class held at a shop nearby this winter. The first day of class I learned that the quilt we were making is actually more of a lap quilt. Or a wall hanging. Plus, the fabrics weren’t really my style.
Once my roommate A moves out in three weeks, I think I will create a little spot in the living room for my sewing machine one alone-weekend and patch up something lovely for my bed. I need to finish shopping for fabric, but hopefully soon I’ll knock off the “sew a quilt” item on my 2009 goals!
Quilting Costs: So far $25 on fabric from Ikea. (I had no idea they sold that!)
