So, it's done. It's king sized in case I ever have a king bed again. The bedroom in our rental house is blue so it matches, what more could one want?. It only took this long to finish due to the green border. One of my cats (yes, my fat one) had ripped a few holes in it while trying to jump up on the bed when I was testing it for size a long way back, and I wasn't sure I'd be able to quilt it without doing some major work.
I chose a random kelp like design that involved a lot of bubbles over the rips. I think I patched them pretty securely! We will see though. I'm a little sad this will soon be covered with cat hair, but we make sacrifices for our children.
this pattern at some point in the future. If you randomly stumbled onto this post and are suddenly struck dumb by the need to make one too, there's a great flickr group with tons of inspiration, and wonderful QAL instructionS and advice at the Penny Poppleton blog.
