A big finish!



A big finish!!!  This is the biggest quilt I have made to date.  I used the Garden Trellis pattern from Faith at Fresh Lemons and added a bunch of extra blocks to bring it up to the size needed.  I quilted it with tons of straight lines in my favourite Aurifil 50 wt in white and it was a beast to quilt!!!!  Luckily the sun was out just a little bit and the rain and snow stayed away so I could take pictures!!!

I used a sheet for the back with a bit of the leftovers in a pieced strip!  I am just so happy it is finished.  I have to wrap it up quick!  Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it up Friday.

  7. Double wow, Cathy - it's gorgeous and the straight line quilting looks fabby. You're not helping me to face my demons, though - straight line quilting frightens the bejeebers out of me! Must put my big girl pants on and just do it on my next quilt ... any tips gratefully received :)
