I've been thinking all weekend about which quilt to enter this time around. I couldn't seem to come to a solid decision. So Sunday night I decided to sleep on it.
Then I went to bed and watched my husband grab the Grape Soda quilt and wrap it around himself like a burrito (we have two quilts on the bed...to avoid the blanket wars...which I usually start...okay okay, I always start them).
Suddenly, it didn't seem like that hard of a choice at all. This quilt was made for me. I broke into my precious Tula Pink stash. Ordered the purple fabric with the little pindots from rather far away. I even ran a whole QAL around it.
Then when I finished it, the Mr. stole it. He stole it with such conviction that I couldn't take it back.
I'm not upset in the slightest.
