I decided I’d love to make a values quilt to hang on the wall in our bedroom. We don’t have a headboard (shame on us) and we really need some height to balance our huge king sized bed, plus we really could use a focal point. I love the way a values quilt plays with light and dark, and I especially love the look with the Benartex Fossil Fern collection. Isn’t it cool? I set out my pattern on the floor, just to see what it might look like.
And it was good.
But then I started thinking, this is going to hang above our bed, maybe I can sneak a romantic message into the quilt. So I played with ideas a little as I made more blocks, then decided I’d try making it into an “X O” pattern. You know, X for a kiss and O for a hug. Sweet, huh? But then I tried it out.
It’s a fish.
And fish aren’t really all that romantic. So there goes that idea.
