My Daughter Has a Stash!
It was my own fault. I thought I could do it! I used wool batting to make it "poofy" and while pinning it I decided that one layer of wool batting would not make it poofy enough. It would be too much like a quilt and not enough like a comforter, so I added another layer of wool batting. Try pushing a queen sized comforter with two layers of wool batting through your home sewing machine! Then I thought quilting circles would be fun, but when pushing that bulk through the machine, it was pretty much impossible to get circles to look like circles and not squished balls. So Hubby and I spent nine hours removing circle quilting.....
She has a great idea too for the bed skirt that she found on Pinterest. Can hardly wait to see it!
(Oh and in appreciation for the quilting, she gave me a delicious loaf of homemade bread, raspberry jam and some "Birthday Suit Apple Juice" - yummy!!)
Back to stash building! Have a great day!
