Living With Quilts: Couch Blankie

We bought our living room set for our new home just as soon as we were able to stop eating ramen noodles for every meal (Note:  real estate in New York is somewhat
spendy and it took a while for our checkbook to recover from the closing).  Heating fuel in New York is also somewhat spendy, so we keep our house cold.  Like "my glasses fog up when I exhale" cold, and we've been known to wear gloves indoors.

Obviously, I needed a quilt for my sofa.

I walked into my local quilt shop and headed directly for their sale rack.  Unbelievably, they had several bolts of fabric that worked well together that also matched my living room furniture!

If you read last week's explanation of why we can't have nice things (hint: because we have a geriatric cat), you'll understand why my sofa is so disgusting and well past the point of replacement.

The pattern is from Beginner's Luck, one of my favorite Thimbleberries' pattern books ever.  I've made many quilts from that book several times each!

Hmmm... I'll have to dig through my fabric stash and flip through that book again to see what quilts are begging me to make them!

Oooooohhhh! That's a bit cold even for me. Not sure I could do that but it makes for a very good reason to have plenty of quilts. Keep your furniture and walls warm! The quilt was a perfect match.
