Now, before anyone says anything about the name of the quilt, it was inspired by this song...and if you mishear the "Psychadelic Furs" lyric the way I did when I heard it for the first time, and once you see the quilt, you'll understand why.
Behind the Music - The Vandals
I can't remember which pattern this came from (so hey, if anyone recognizes the pattern...), because I started this 4-5 years ago too, but I was way too into this bright fabric and it's a little overpowering, but weirdly I still like it.
Here is what I started with. NO idea why two sides have a black border and the other two don't, but whatever. I wasn't planning on taking it apart to put new black pieces on (I don't have the original fabric anyhow). But seriously...talk about wonky! It was warped from ironing when I should have pressed, and my quarter inch seams were iffy at best. But it held together just fine so I kept it as is.
All I did was finish the pink borders (originally only the top and bottom pieces were attached) and add the green one. I figured how could it get any brighter and any more garish? It's a psychedelic turd...how does that saying go? If you paint a turd gold, it's still a turd? Something like that. Well, either way, it's fitting. (And I can hear a handful of y'all from all the way over here..."how many more times is this girl going to say 'turd'?" Probably a few more times. It's a little funny.)
Another one for the "ready to quilt, someday" pile.
