Yesterday afternoon I completed the largest quilt I have ever made!
It is a custom quilt, as requested from Lynne, a family friend.
Pattern: Floral Bouquet (changed to King-size), from the book: Jelly Roll Quilts
Fabric: Curio Jelly Rolls by Basic Grey for Moda, and Moda White cotton.
Finished dimensions: 105" x 118" (extra room for shrinkage)
I was a little nervous about making all those points line up,
but somehow they turned out pretty nice!
There were 98 of the blocks/flowers.... but it sped things up to do them assembly-line style, each part of the block 98 times.
She wanted me to go "light on the quilting", so I did an allover medium-size stippling.
For binding I used yardage of one of the green prints in the Jelly Roll.
Our bed is king-size too, and it looked so nice.
When I rolled it up for shipping, Levi came in and asked me if I knew what it looked like. He then squealed "a Jelly Roll!" and took off laughing like he'd told the best joke ever. ;)
Thank you, Lynne, for letting me make this quilt for you, it was so much fun!
For those of you who don't quilt, just as a reference; using high-quality quilting fabrics, the supplies alone were over $250 (shopping for sales online), and I spent about 34 hours total.
But it was worth it, the outcome is always so exciting!
And it is made to last for multiple generations.
