My First Bed Size Quilt Finish!!!


I can officially say that I have finished my first bed size quilt!  I have made A LOT of lap quilts, baby quilts, and table runners, but never a queen size quilt.  Well, I have now finished one, and boy have I learned a lot.  When I first started this quilt in March 2014, I had done a lot of quilting, but never worried about seam allowances, or knew how to cut properly/some basics, but by following blogs, looking at a lot of tutorials and trial and error I can say I have learned a lot.  I am very proud of this one, and it is now belongs to its rightful owners for their wedding TWO years ago!  The name of the quilt is "Spinning Love," which I think is very appropriate as it just dances with the pinwheels.  The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter called Patches and Pinwheels.


A close up of the pattern, and you can not tell the quilting from here, but it was done via long arm, and turned out great!

Now I'm on to my next quilt, which is for a commission.  It is going to be lap sized, with some cute  labradors and paw fabrics.  It is going to be a quick sew, but I have to cut the fabrics and just sit down and do it.  Then I have a few others on tap that need to be done by November.  I think I'm going to be a very busy girl!


One more, I just couldn't resist.  I love how it looks like it dances when you see the whole thing, and you see me holding it, plus our apartment complex.  This is one of my Quarter 3 goals which makes me very excited to finish it and see what else I can accomplish this quarter!
