Quilt With Us

It is with a great sigh of relief that I tell you the DD's DWR top is put together.  Now on to marking, basting and quilting - all hopefully before June.  (yikes!)  

Here they are:

Here it is on our queen size bed.  I made it oversized for a queen at 101 x 101" so it would be big enough to work on a king size bed in the future.  (Future son-in-law is 6'5".)  

I didn't have yardage of 30's fabrics, especially for the cornerstones, so instead of the traditional 2 colors for the cornerstones (or the 4-patches where the arcs meet), I saved all of the 30's solid FQs for those.  I tried to pair them up when I could, but it didn't always work out in the layout.  I'm satisfied with it, though and just glad to have the construction part behind me.  Wish I could magically gather all my handquilting buddies across the nation here for a weekend to get this puppy quilted!

You are an inspiration. I've been wanting to do a double wedding ring quilt to inspire my two younger (single) daughters...ha. You've done a fabulous job. There is no way I would be able to handquilt it though. That is unless the couple were willing to wait for their 50th anniversary!

Wow - you must have the patience of Job!   I made a small wall hanging for my parents 50th, using gold fabrics.  I can't imagine having enough patience to complete a king-sized quilt and then hand quilt it!!

This is truly a labor of love and I'm sure will be appreciated for many years to come!

absolutely drop dead gorgeous, PQ!!  Definitely one that they'll love and cherish (or face the wrath of the quilting gods lol) and I'm sure they'll lovingly pass it on to one of their children or grandchildren sometime wayyyy in the future.  Please, please, PLEASE be sure to label it so that future generations will know it was made by their (great-great?) grandmother and not by some unknown in a factory somewhere overseas.

Wow-za-licious!  Can I be a part of your family?!!  This is gorgeous and she is most definitely going to like it.  I can't wait to see it all quilted.

Elana:  This is machine pieced.  

Everyone:  Thanks so much for the nice comments, encouragement and help along the way.  I'll try to get a picture of a quilted block or the quilt design when I get that far.  :)
