And it's done.....

13 February 2012

Oh my goodness, this quilt felt like it was a never-ending project.  But I am super excited with how it turned out.  You see, it all started when my niece found out that I had started quilting.  She is a freshman in college and she "casually" mentioned how cool it would be to have a quilt for her dorm room.  Well, I caught the subtle hint and went to work!  I wanted something colorful to match her amazing personality.
I used Terrain by Kate Spain for these string blocks.  Hopefully this will be right up her alley.  It measures about 63x75, just big enough to cuddle with.  Up to this point, I have made 4 out of 5 quilts for the nieces and nephews.  Hopefully by April I will have the last one done! 

I can check one project off my list for the 2012 Finish-A-Long!  I love making progress!  You can find my original post here.

Oh and there's still time to enter the Fugly Fabric Giveaway, stop by and check it out!


I pieced the back with large pieces of Terrain.

  2. I LOVE this quilt!! I have a string quilt topper that I made a while back, but need to finish it up.. What did you use as batting? I've read where some people use regular batting, some people recommend only using flannel or something similar for batting, and some people use nothing at all.. Also, LOVE the straight line quilting you did!! Very pretty! :-)

  8. LOVE this quilt! I have a layer cake of Central Park (Kate Spain, also) that might just be perfect like this. I'm DYING to know.... did you machine quilt it yourself? I haven't attempted that before, but would like to do it on a baby quilt I'm making with straight lines just like this. Did you run into any problems quilting those lines? Any tips you can offer would be GREATLY appreciated (I'm SO nervous... he he he)~Robin
