I’m collaborating with a friend on a HUGE quilt for our dear pals who are getting married this summer.
Yesterday I finished assembling the top:
This thing is a monster! In the picture above it is laid out on my King Size bed. (BTW – like my pink walls? That was a painting mistake we made 3 years ago and are hoping to remedy this weekend.)
We were inspired by THIS QUILT from filminthefridge.com.
We asked all of our friends who sew to donate a green or blue fabric scrap for us to incorporate. Then we went to work assembling linear, modern, scrappy blocks. It’s 5 x 7 blocks that were cut to 12 inches (so 11.5 inches squared after assembly). A monster! But isn’t it fun?
Now for the punchline – I’m going to attempt machine quilting this mo-fo by myself. I’ve never machine quilted anything larger than a table runner, but I BELIEVE!! Wish me luck and stay tuned…
