Quilt With Us

Hello everyone....What a great year it has been already!

Well guess what? 

I made a card trick, King size top: in seven DAYS...Yes that's right 7 days!  With DH cutting and my sewing, he cooked and cleaned up and all I did was sew...it was finished with approx. 6-7 hours sewing time and I finished it. You can ask Irene Gallway she saw it on facebook.!

It is on my phone so I need to get it off of there and on to here so you can see it.

I am so excited it is done...and the best thing is???? the quilt top came out FLAT.! Now I can say it came out really pretty..I am pleased..

The fabric came from Pennsylvania, and I have had this for about 10-15 yrs,,so I made a decision to get a top made for our bed,,, Finally!  That's why I was asking about the batting,,,and yes Connecting Threads came in first! I also ordered the backing from Pennsylvania. I didn't have enough of the fabric that I bought many years ago,  and if you look at the bed, that too came from Pennsylvania, hand made, the finish was still wet when it came and was in our room,,they said to be careful, it may scratch. It was a custom bed! We love it!

As soon as I can figure it out I will post it,,,

Wow! You were moving. I don't think I could teach my DH to cut out a coupon much less a quilt. Congratulations!

Yep, she finished the top in 7 days.  It's gorgeous.  I have had that pattern for years but have never made it. She has inspired me to want to make it.

Now, that's blazing speed. I'm visualizing my husband cutting!!!! It would take me 7 days to teach him!!!
