I tell you I nearly sat bolt upright in bed and switched on the lights.
Ever since I got back into quilting I've been offering to make Chief a quilt. His response has always been: Nah too gay. You can make me a duvet cover if you like but I don't want any of patchwork stuff going on. Now he's actually got to sleep under one he decides he wants one. I asked about sizing and he said it needed to be about a foot wider. In the morning when I went to make breakfast I got back to find him trying to snuggle under it. He came to the conclusion it also needed to be a foot longer too so he can stretch out and put it right up to his neck and still have it cover his feet. Oh and he doesn't mind if I used gay fabrics although if I have any of that camo girls fabric left he'd have some of that in it.
Camo Girls Fabric made into a cushion for him
Further more apart from maybe seeing him later in the month, I am unlikely to see him again this side of October. Helpfully he's offered to pick up the completed quilt next time he's down in October.(!)
So now I have to come up with a simple Chief friendly pattern, work out what fabric to use and er make the quilt before October. No pressure then?!
