Quilt With Us

Wedding Quilt - a modified and finished UFO

This quilt was modified from a lap quilt to a queen.  Started with CT's pattern "Cabin Life" (I believe) and their flannels from that time.  I'd ordered extra fabric at the time, knowing I planned to make it larger.  I'd put together the original size back when I first got the pattern/fabric, but hadn't gotten around to finishing it.  I wanted to gift this for a wedding quilt, so a couple of weeks ago, I pulled it out and started working on it again.  

It reminds me of a Pendleton Hudson Bay blanket, and I really like how it turned out.  The back was pieced with more chunks of CT's flannel, but I didn't get a picture of the back.  It finished 90 x 96.  Cotton batt.  Machine quilted on my domestic machine - very simply.  It pretty much used up all of the flannel from this line - in fact, I ran short of the background fabric - even after piecing every little bit of it together that I could find - and had to substitute a close-but-not-exact match in 2 places.  Regardless, the couple loved it, which makes my heart smile.  It was finished the day before we left for the wedding.

Thanks, Irene and Shannon!  I was relieved to have it done in time, which is sometimes a challenge for me.  hahaha! (procrastination is sometimes my  middle name.)

I also thought of the Hudson Bay blankets when I first looked at it.  It is beautiful and I'm sure the young couple will enjoy it for years to come.

Barb, it was a hard one to part with, but the older I get, the easier it is to hold things with a looser hand.  My son said that if the couple didn't like it, he'd take it off their hands.  I don't make wedding quilts for just anyone - this was made for a very special couple.

Beautiful!  Hudson Bay blanket quilt, for sure.  Nice quilting, too.  I agree with you on washing after you're finished does hide a few things that you see, but no one else would pick up on.  I do the same.  It might have been hard to part with that quilt, being so beautiful.  What a lucky couple!

Thanks.  This is why I love you guys.  You are all very kind and encouraging, and I appreciate it.  You celebrate the finishes and look past the imperfections.   You all make my heart smile, too.
