Well, I really dropped the ball on my '20 quilt posts in 20 days' goal!
As we start thinking about New Year's resolutions, we would all do well to remember to set REALISTIC goals for ourselves.
A blog post everyday for 20 days is very unrealistic for me...especially during the holidays! What was a I thinking?
Oh well! I guess we live and learn!
This quilt is part of the reason I couldn't keep up to date on my blog goals.
This amazing quilt was pieced by Brittany from Quilter's Haven.
She truly did an amazing job with the piecing.
I still struggle with piecing sometimes, so when I see those perfectly matching points on a client's quilt, I am just in reverent awe.
This quilt caught me off guard when I started loading it onto the longarm frame. I had seen pictures of this quilt, because it was such a hit at Spring Market. But, for some reason, the pictures really don't show just how big it actually is!
So, what I thought would be a fairly easy 3-day custom quilt job ended up stretching into a two-and-a-half week custom quilt job.
I am thrilled with how it turned out, but it was a challenging quilt to machine quilt, in that I had to use rulers 90% of the time, (although I did free-motion quilting on a little bit of the quilt) and had to come up with a new design for every block.
Well, enough chit-chat. I took too many pictures, so get ready for picture overload with this one!
A little sneak peak of the many tools I used to quilt this one.
And, of course, pictures of the quilt back!
