This quilt was long time coming. I collected the fabrics, both vintage and vintage vibe-y, for over four years.
Finally, in last August, I pulled myself together and went for it! I decided on basic square pattern and simple
stitching and got to work. I made the quilt for my bed and its 200cm wide and 220cm long. Go big or go home.
Since back then I didn't know there was quilting services available in Finland, I improvised the batting from basic sheets,
so I could quilt it with my basic sewing machine. The total cost for everything was about 100 euros. I think
it's rather good price for a quilt that size.
