Recently I was encouraged by my sister-in-law to get back into quilting. She is an avid quilter. She offered to help me get started. So with her help I dove into a very large project: a queen size quilt for my daughter and son-in-law as a wedding gift.
Here is a picture of it finished:
As you can see each square is different. I chose a star pattern, picked the fabrics, then involved the whole family. I sent each family group samples of the fabrics, square template and instructions. They were to design a square. When I received all the sample designed squares, I made 18" squares per each design then sewed them together, added sashes and a border to construct the quilt. So this is a "family project".
I'm not so sure I would suggest that a newbie make a quilt this size, as involved or one as a
wedding present. :)
I put many hours into the sewing and quilting of this. Every hour I concentrated on and prayed for my daughter, my future son-law and their marriage.
Since this quilt I have made 3 more and working on another. The other 3 were a particular type that has become my favorite for its ease and simplicity. I will share about those......to be continued
