Linda's autograph wedding quilt - finally done!

toolgrannyNovember 13, 2012

I finally did it. Making really big quilts takes too much of my energy. I used the frame to squiggle the sig. blocks and then used the table top to do the carpenter's star and the border. I'll sure be glad to get this one to it's owner and get on to slower projects of my own design. I can hardly wait for the bride to see it.

A big thank you to Robbi for making the lovely label.

Close up to follow.

I know what you mean about really big quilts, Linda. I can't do them anymore. You did a great job on this quilt and having the blocks come together.

The Newlyweds will love it! Great use of Signature blocks surrounding the Capernter Star center.

Your quilting is beautiful ~ I'm curious ~ why don't you use your frame for all your quilting?

Very nice keepsake.

Linda,

No big surprise, but that turned out beautifully! It'll be a treasure for sure.

Marsha~ I can't tell about the Carpenter's square, but if I did a border with straight lines like in her border, I'd use my regular machine too. I cannot do straight line stitching on my frame. It would be so much faster and crisper done with the reg. machine.
