My Nearly Insane Quilt top is finished and ready to take to the Machine Quilter. I am so relieved to have finished it, and have
The quilt is so large I couldn’t get a photo at home, so got a friend to take a photo at Quilt meeting last week.
It took me almost 5 years to make, from the date I made the 1st block to when I stitched the last border on, with lots of down time in between!
I have another quilt basted for an Australian Grand-daughter ready to do some of my hopefully reasonable machine quilting on. I am a real beginner at this, but they say practise makes perfect! This quilt measures 80”.
I am in the process of making more blocks for a blue, cream and brown/tan quilt that I started in 2011. I needed to make 144 x 8” blocks for this quilt as I wanted it for our main bed. I like the quilts to finish about 96” square. I still have about 40 blocks to make, and am joining them into blocks 4 x 4 which seems to make them easier to cope with.
Thanks for dropping by
