Thank you for the nice messages you sent me, I am feeling better…
I am glad I can finally show you the quilt (well, the top) I made for my husband.
Here is, I love it !!! My husband loves it too.
I used a few suggestions you kindly offered me in a previous post… thank you !!!
I managed to make it in time for February 14.
It measures 80″ X 90″ ( 2 x 2.25 m ) and has 42 12″ blocks.
I bought it special for this project so I just had to use it. I am glad I have enough for binding.
I did not pay attention at all where I placed the green and the blue blocks, I was in such a hurry to finish piecing before the arrival of my husband. I am not entirely happy with this setting but what is done is done !
I worked two days on it but I did not feel too good, normally piecing would take less time….
- I did not pre-wash the fabrics, I did not want to distord the striped fabric. But I usually make a dense quilting and I hope there will not be any problem.I never pre-wash the fabric I use for kaleidoscope, but this time I did not pre-wash any fabric.
- I don’t know when I will quilt it…I hope I will do that before his birthday, in August !
