... or, at least she wishes she were a quilter. she made a quilt many years ago ... a quilt that took 8 years to complete! and she loves it, and she uses it, and she wants another one.
so, she picked up a pattern last year by indygo junction. something about it was appealing to this knitter pseudo-quilter ....
it's called plaid flowers, and it needs some tweaking. first of all, it's a small quilt, and needs to be at least queen size. and, it has these awful vertical bands between the flowers that just need to go away ! so, the knitter-quilter girl sat in bed last night, surrounded by her knitting magazines and this pattern sheet, and she folded these tiny pleats into the paper to make it look like the picture in her head ... just columns of flowers ... like beanstalks.
so, she's taken the first step. she's told everyone that she's going to make a quilt. the next step ... a trip to mary jo's.
