QUILT SHOW










This was my quilt I entered in the quilt show our Quilt Guild put on at the end of September... For me quilting is so relaxing....well.....SOMETIMES!!
It is what they call a wholecloth quilt and mine is pale blue on one side and cream on the other. It is BIG...105'x 89". It took me quite awhile to hand quilt it but I didn't mind as it is something I love to do...The very edge is scallopped and that's where my headache began.. I wanted to make a 2 color binding, but didn't know how. After researching my books I found what I needed to go ahead.... at least I thought so!! I got the binding made but when I went to apply it the binding didn't want to lay flat..grrrrr..... So I had to take it all off and design something better and finally after much frustration I got it to work.. I think it is a very pretty quilt, in spite of the headaches I had getting it finished!!!

Beautiful quilt: both the color and the pattern. I too love to hand quilt but I haven't yet done a whole cloth although I have one of those premarked ones in the closet :)
