Bed Quilt


If you remember back to August of 2010 you’ll remember THIS post about how I was going to start a bed quilt for Hubby and me.  This quilt has taken me SO long to work on and sew and complete.  You might also remember early September in THIS post I had the top done (finally) and everything sandwiched ready for quilting.  Quilting it actually didn’t take me too long to do and I then bound it by wrapping the edge of the top over to the back and sewing it down.  This may be cheating, but I simply wanted this quilt to be done.  Well, it’s now done and on our bed, and we love being able to use this thing.  It turned out really well for my first extra large queen size quilt.

While I do like how this quilt turned out, I think I don’t love it.  I want to do a more girlish quilt; with floral and softer colors.  I’ve got the fabric and pattern already for another queen size quilt; lets just pray it doesn’t take me a year to make this next one.  We’ll see, I’ve got about 5 quilts that are already started and about half way done.  Maybe I should work on finishing those up first.
