When my boys were small, they were very artistic. My refrigerator was covered with their artwork, along with those dumb magnetic letters and numbers you get at the dollar store - which fell off every time you tried to get some milk. They're grown now, and the only thing up there is a grocery list, a few magnetic business cards, and a pizza menu. BO-O-O-O-RING!!!!!
Since I was at my aunt's overnight, I decided to use her fridge to show you how to spruce the place up for grown-ups! It is so easy, with so few supplies, to let your light shine and show everyone what you can do with needle and thread. Shall we start? Here's what you need:
- a quilt that will fit on your fridge
- adhesive magnetic tape [available at Walmart]
measure it against your quilt under the top binding -
peel off the paper from the magnetic tape -
and press it firmly, adhesive side toward the quilt, right under the binding.
And just like that, you're ready to take your fridge from boring
to the envy of all the other appliances!!
Top or bottom, it doesn't matter!
But Allie, you say, I don't have a fridge like that - mine is a side by side. NO PROBLEM. Measure the space, and make a quilt to fit! I happen to have a side by side myself, and I'm thinking of the small quilts I have that would fit perfectly. A skinny table runner would be awesome. It doesn't have to fit the whole space, just put up one [or two or three] and give your kitchen some color and life - a fridge that isn't embellished with quilts is just wasted real estate!
By the way, I made sure to bring this quilt home with me, much to my aunt's chagrin - she thought it looked wonderful there and wasn't going to remind me to take it. Maybe I'll have to make her one!
