A Big Heart
It's a funny feeling. I've got so many finished projects to show you right now that I'm just randomly choosing quilts to blog about. Finishing up all these UFO's has a double benefit, since it fits in with my nesting syndrome as well as giving me something to blog about once the baby is born. (any time now!)
I made this quilt top almost a year ago now, and then I later decided to add more cream colored squares around the edges to make it a queen size. It's destined for someone special but she hasn't received it yet because I want to add an embroidered label.
This is one of the three quilts that I splurged and got quilted at a long arm quilter. What an awesome experience! Only thing is that I really can't afford to quilt if I get into the habit of this, so I guess it's reserved for special occasions or special quilts! I really do enjoy quilting my own quilts, but when I see the beautiful even stitches and designs... This time I found a quilter in Calgary who I will definitely be using again.
So what more should I say about this quilt? The squares were 5"x5". It ended up approximately queen size, although I haven't measured it after I washed it.
