But, I had decided already to take a relaxed approach - the aim was to end up with a top. End of. So I trimmed a bit and added a bit and stretched a bit and, well, I think it makes a decent snuggle quilt. More interesting than the blue and white teacups for sure. It is about 66.5 inches by 65.25 inches. Exactly square is so passe darlings! (I know that has a French accent on it but I don't know how to type it.)
Why the name? Well firstly a lot of easing of fabric went into getting it together. And I had an unexpected and unplanned day of work, so I was taking it easy at home playing with fabric. And encouraging a dear friend, at whom life has thrown more bad things in the last couple of years than a roomful of people should bear in a lifetime, that taking it easy was something she had earned and needed. Oh, and you might have noticed that it is not exactly a complex pattern!
