    First kingside quilt finished

    Hello my quilting friends,
    Yesterday I finished my first kingsize quilt for my bed. The pattern is called Emily's wedding quilt designed by Liz Porter. I saw it in an episode of love of quilting and fell in love...the fabric is mostly small wonders designed by Mary Fons, purchased at MSQC.
    This quilt was really a teatcher for me, here's what I learned:
    - a quilt can never be to big, and it shrinks after making the quilt sandwich and quilting
    - the first color choice might not work automatically, a friend suggested to put the first colorful blocks in the border and make the center in blue, I am so thankful
    - it is possible to quilt a kingsize quilt on a domestic sewing machine ( and everything that disappeared while half of my livingroom was covered with this quilt showed up after I was finished including my Apple TV remote)
    - I love wool batting its so lightweight and cosy and wonderful to quilt

    Thanks for looking!

    That was a major achievement. I can't begin to imagine quilting something that large on a DSM. Congratulations, it's a wonderful quilt.

            Me too, I love this fabric it's called signature hearts and it is a wide backing fabric...also from Mary Fons small wonders. I am not able to throw anything away I even kept the salvage edges ;-)

                What a gorgeous quilt & what a labor of love. I would never have attempted a project that big on my DSM, or even my Baby Lock Tiara. You did a great job!

                    Wow that quilt is massive and you said you quilted it on a regular sewing machine?? That is a real tribute to your quilting skills. You should be very proud. She's what I would affectionately call a Sleeping Beauty!!!
