Not a Quilt

Sometimes Mom does weird stuff. Like last night. She went into the sewing room after dinner, and starting cutting out great big pieces of fabric. This is not normal. Usually she takes big pieces and cuts them into little pieces.

She sewed some of the pieces together.
She ironed some pieces. But she does not do this when she makes a quilt.
This is not like any quilt she has ever made before.
This is certainly the wrong shape for a quilt.

Nope, no quilt in here either.


Huh?

Oh. Mom says she's gonna make me a nice pillow out of this yellow fleece and fasten the poles together better.

It's still not a quilt.

I dunno what this is.

(And yes, Parker, this is the same fabric Mom used in your quilt!)


Update at 7:48 AM
OK, so it's a tent. Or a tee-pee. Mom says she isn't going to sell them. She says it's McCall's pattern # M5412 and it takes about 3-1/2 yards of fabric for the tent, 1-1/2 yards for the pillow, fiberfill for the pillow and about $6.00 worth of stuff from the hardware store.

Millie - your mum is super clever. She should sell these. She could post them (without the poles) in an envelope cause they would fold up small.

You can play tent wars now too!!
