It was bound to happen sooner or later - here is my first trash can quilt. It broke my heart to turn this over to the cat for a bed cause as my friends will tell you, I treasure my batiks and this used a lot of them. I even splurged and used $10 yard fabric for the backing which I never do. Then I finally had time to quilt one of 4 or 5 waiting in the pile. Every time I quilt one I think about people saying "you always meander", you always do the leaves and hearts, you need to do other stuff". I never listen to it because I like doing a meander and I like the freehand hearts and leaves. So I pinned this on and couldn't wait to get it done for my friend Kerry. At the last minute I decided mabe I should try one of my template designs.
