As you can see from the photo below, it’s so dull and dark here even the birds don’t know what to make of it. About a thousand arrived yesterday, settled in the trees for a few minutes and flew away again.
So I felt we were much in need of some brightening up and, on a whim, I sewed together some squares from a Vintage Modern layer cake, with a couple of solids thrown in, to make a cover for a summer weight duvet that we occasionally use this year have been continually using as an extra cover when it gets really cold.
But once the fabrics were sewn together it seemed a shame not to be making a quilt of it so I added some buttons to make it a sort of tied quilt.
And not only was the whole thing really quick and easy to make, it has turned out to be much nicer and more cheerful in real life than it looks in the photos. I think if Spring isn’t planning on coming outside this year we’ll have to sew some sunshine indoors!
Happy St Patricks Day!
