So, I think today's post will be relatively short. But ugly. Very ugly. As in, if 2020 had been a quilt, what would it have looked like?
I can tell you.
It might look like this:
But, anyway, to get back on track....
I saw a pack of Christmas fabric pre-cuts. Oh, these fabrics, the little that I could see of them while they were still packed up, didn't look great together to me. I think there would have been a way to use them and make some really pretty Christmas items.
They don't know ME very well, do they?
I opened the pack up and discovered some “gems” in there. I used them all together, along with some weird orange and tan fabric to fill out the little bit more I needed. Plus the white for the center.
I began by thinking about trying to simulate a Christmas ornament in the middle. I didn't do **too** badly, considering the fact this was my very first attempt at such a thing and I just kind of went with whatever I cut out and didn't try to fix anything. Just whatever I did, I went with.
I washed it to remove all the fabric marker marks, fluffed it in the dryer, so I can attest that it is machine washable and dryable. It is lap quilt size. I'm not sure anyone would want to sport this around.
One last thing for me to do is make a custom label for the back with my name and the year.
Will anybody want this thing? It's a collector's item?
IF 2020 WAS A QUILT.
Sorry to say, though, 2021 seems to be telling 2020 to hold its beer.
