It seemed like I only had my Christmas quilts out a few weeks before it was time to pack them up with the rest of the Christmas decorations. Goodbye Toulouse, goodbye Oh Christmas Tree. I'm usually happy to have my space back after the holidays, but I was not looking forward to looking at that big blank wall after enjoying Oh Christmas Tree in my living room the month of December.
Originally, I was going to take the rod down and just leave the brackets up until it was time to hang Oh Christmas Tree again. Then I got to thinking, maybe I would enjoy having a quilt in that space more than just through the holidays....so I looked over my options and decided on this.....
Myths of Avalon, I made this quilt this time of year, January and February, in 2006, over 5 years ago, and I still love it! This was the 11th quilt I ever made, my daughter has its twin, quilt #12, hanging in her apartment.
I'm not sure how long I'll leave it up, it doesn't get direct sunlight, so I plan to enjoy this quilt at least through February....I'm not sure if I'll replace it with another quilt or go back to a blank wall, I'll just see what appeals to me then.
I also replaced the Christmas quilt I had on my bed with this quilt,
I made this quilt back in January of 2008. I think the fabric is technically Christmas fabric, but I think it has a romantic feel to it that suits January and particularly February, with Valentines Day and all. Now that I've made several quilts for my bed, I'm over that, "Don't get on the quilt" stage, it took awhile, but I'm finally really enjoying my quilts in my home. For years they only lived on the back of the red couch or on a quilt rack.
I'm still working away on my hst units for Belle Meade. I'm trying not to get too worked up about the best combinations or mix of fabrics, instead I'm just enjoying working with this lovely French General fabric.

I think it has a romantic feel to it too. So far, this project has been very relaxing and is coming together nicely......although I am ready to make a few blocks, Nicole has jumped ahead of me and has a floor full of them already!
