October Quilt

I spent most of October doing what I call “Reverse Nesting” !

I cleaned out closets that haven’t been touched in months, years, heck decades (I’ve lived in this house for 30 years com May 2012). I filled the dumpster every week and took at least 1 load to the Good Will store.

When I was out following the Quilt Minnesota shop hop I ran across a quilt kit in one of the shops that just really grabbed me. I’m not usually a yellow & orange type person, but this one had a lot of brown in it also. And I have never done a quilt with a panel in it. So I brought the kit.

It’s simple, but was kind of cheery and that’s what I needed at the time. I used the book  #5354 Quilt Boutique that I purchased on Amazon (because it was cheaper there than at the quilt store. The material and panel were purchased as a kit from the quilt store.

Bottom line it will be a quick throw around one of kids when they are sitting on the couch or around the fire pit. And I had fun making it. There is something to say about quilts/projects that are simple – sometimes you just need that simple task to feel like you completed something that day.
