The Gift of Love

Sorry my posts have been late.

I’ve had a hard time getting back into the swing of things after taking a break from the blog for eighteen days.

And now, instead of men and sex on the brain, I have crafting on the brain.

So I want to introduce you to my next project.

The Spruced Goose.

It’s a traditional Goose in a Pond square surrounded by purple batik stars.

I happen to love it and though I’m not 100% positive who I’m making it for, I have a good idea of who I might give it to.

I love that it uses a prismatic rainbow of batik fabrics.

And the purple and white star sashing that ties it all together is beautiful using this selection of purple floral batiks.

The surprising thing about this quilt is that it uses 10-inch layer cake squares (10” x 10”) instead of fat quarters (18” x 20-22”).

I’m optimistic that I’ll be able to slowly work on this quilt one square at a time.

I can’t binge quilt anymore but I can piece this puppy together one little bit at a time.

To give you an idea of costs, I’ve spent $138.53 on the fabric for the top of the quilt.

I estimate it’ll cost $100 for batting and fabric backing and $150 to quilt.

So $390 in total for a quilt, isn’t bad.

It’s definitely a gift of love.
