FINISHED



I finished this quilt last Saturday afternoon.  I used just over 1200 yards of thread and was quilting anywhere from 5 to 10 hours a day to get it done.  I added top stitching to all the larger applique pieces and went back and added a line between which now makes the lines about 1/2" apart.  I still need to make my label but need to buy special fabric paper to run it thru my printer.  I'm sure I will find it in Paducah when I go next week. I will post my label when I have it done as I'm planning on putting the picture of the original quilt and the templates, plus my own info.  It has been a fun journey.....now onto my next applique project.

  1. Your quilt looks incredible!! So many details to see and enjoy. Your quilting is amazing and I LOVE your borders - so like the original and yet unique. That was quite the push to finish - I can't imagine quilting for 10 hours in one day! The next applique project - those are exciting words :0)

  15. Love, love your quilt! How do you choose the backing? I have gotten so much fabric, the Threadbear CWBQ bundles, etc., and I'm still stuck! I can't seem to start because I can't choose the background fabric. Don't know if I should go with different shirting styles, solid, all one print, etc., Somebody HELP! I want to start.
