I was all set to purchase the fabric (about 15 yards of Kona white cotton) and topquilt 4 large squares with channel lines. My plan was to hand-sew the squares into one large king-sized quilt. It was going to be all messy and yummy and crumply and white. Sort of a pain in the ass, but I was getting all geeked up about it. I was even thinking of ruffles!
Then I came across this.
It's an all-white channel stitched quilt (very Pottery Barn-esque) at Target. It was on sale for less than $60. You quilters know that I couldn't possibly purchase enough front and back yardage for a king sized quilt, plus batting for less than $60. I had to snap it up.
So now it is on my bed and I have remorse. I like it. Love it, really. Except I have this nagging voice in my head telling me I could have made something more memorable. Something my kids would want to pass down. But I sold out.
I hate that feeling.
