Did you all know you are the best readers?!? Thank you for your words of encouragement about my second attempt at making a bed-size quilt.
As I was piecing this one, your comments kept coming to mind and urged me to keep going.
After stitching the last border on, I took the top to my bed for a trial run. Fits nicely, I think.
It measures 94″ x 105″ and already it is heavy. I thought I could tape it to the wall to take a photo of the whole thing, but no matter how much tape I used, it kept falling down.
So here’s a photo of it on the floor.
Here are a few closeups.
I’m still amazed that I had all these scraps. And would you believe my scrap bins are still full?!? I think another scrap quilt will be in order soon. But first, I’ll link this one up to the Festival of Scrappiness. And then, I’ll figure out how I’m going to quilt this big quilt on my little machine.
