Guilty as Charged

Posted on 2 Comments

I stand accused of making some “seriously girlie quilts” lately.  Have any of you ever been accused of so heinous a crime?

I can’t help it!  The flowers call to me!

My accuser, the young man pictured in the Uncle Sam hat a couple of posts ago (and who just turned 10 last week – be still my aching heart!), claims that I have made many more quilts appropriate for his sister’s room than for his. 

I am guilty as charged.

To rectify this I made a patriotic quilt for Uncle Sam.  Conventiently, it also functions as an office because Uncle Sam prefers to do all his schoolwork on the floor.  He actually would love to put the quilt under the table to create a “man-cave” but has given up trying to fight his sister’s and my feet for airspace.

I used a pattern called “Crazy Eights” by Bits ‘n Pieces, which I picked up at Cross Stitch Junction in Hilton Head, South Carolina.  Don’t look too close – Sam’s quilt was sewn in record time because I’ve also been working on this…

My mom staking her claim on this one.  I may have to make two because I don’t know if I can let it go.

Have a good week, everyone!
