quilt I made this month

The name of this queen size quilt is Victorian Melody. The fabric is extra fabric I purchased 20 years ago to make one of the daughters brides maid dresses from.

I planned on at that time making a quilt from the same fabric. Finally now that I have more time I have made it.

I had it machine quilted. Twenty years ago I used to hand quilt all of my quilts and working full time it would take me a year to do one.

Beautiful and full of memories as every quilt can be.

Very lovely quilt, Loralee. Talk about a long time in the planning stage! I'm glad you were finally able to make it, and machine quilting is a perfectly good alternative when time is an issue. Is this quilt for your daughter or will you keep it for yourself?

The dark fabric is a burgandy and it is the same color in the center of the pink roses.

The quilt will either be for the daughter or the granddaughter. I have made each of the girls quilts for their wedding and have been working on each of the granddaughters quilts.

Very nice! Doesn't it feel good to finish something that was so long in the planning? I'm sure many of us have those projects......somewhere....

It does feel great to have the planned quilt finished. I had decided to buy an armoire to put a lot of my fabric in.

I had it in boxes in the attic and never could find anything. So, when I needed fabric I would go buy more.

Then came the process of moving and sorting the fabric!! I found 2 other quilts that I had planned and forgotten about. Fabric little mock up done of each quilt.

The quilt is lovely. You did a great job to get it done after all this time. How about a picture of your mock ups? We never get tired of pictures.
