That was the question posed by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville a few days ago, with an invitation to link up and show everyone. It just so happens that I have a Chunky Churndash quilt from one of her free patterns on my bed!
I originally blogged about finishing this quilt here. In the meantime, different quilts have seen rotation, but a couple weeks ago, I put this one back on. Spring has sprung, but it's still been pretty chilly at night.
It's a fairly small bedroom with the queen bed taking up most of the space. Kind of hard to photograph the quilt, but if I stood in the very corners of the room, I could get most of it in frame. And no, I don't have a headboard on this bed because that's how I roll (translation: I haven't bothered to buy one yet). I do use pillows, however, usually three or four of them at a time!
Anyway, what I love about this quilt is the super scrappiness of it, and the memories those scraps bring to mind. I used a lot of my late mother's scraps, along with some of my own, but this was a few years ago when my fabric stash and scrap collection were smaller. There are a few vintage fabrics in there as well, and the narrow red first border is from a man's plaid shirt.
It all came together in a beautiful quilt that remains one of my all-time favorites!
