    Default In The Nick of Time

    I am almost finished making the wedding quilt for my goddaughter. The wedding takes place on Sunday. Talk about cutting it close!!! I didn't realize when I started this quilt that it was a queen but I managed it just fine and won't be afraid to tackle another one this size. I love this Fons and Porter pattern. It was featured on one of their QNNTV videos. It's a simple design as you can see and a wonderful pattern for using large-scale prints. The quilting design I used is one of the feather designs from Emblibrary.com. Hopefully, you can make out the bird in the design when looking at the photo of the back. I took me a minute to find him. If you look closely his beak is facing south. I don't usually repeat quilt patterns but I'm going to consider using this one again. The block finishes at 7". You'll see it is made up entirely of HST's.

    That's a great pattern and your quilt turned out gorgeous! Did you quilt it with your 12000?

    Thanks, Bubby. Yes, the first quilt I've quilted on the 12000. That little bit of extra space in the harp and the larger hoop really made quilting a queen a lot easier than if I had tried it on the 11000. I hope the bride likes it. I wasn't sure about colors so I went with neutrals. I made her little one a baby quilt (see photo below). The requested colors were pink and gray so I figured I probably wouldn't go wrong with the neutrals I chose for the wedding quilt. I'm wondering if their daughter will be a flower girl at their wedding? She's a cutie. I can't wait to actually meet her in person. I didn't think Sara's husband-to-be would be too thrilled with the same colors so I went with a more adult palette for them but included the gray in theirs as well. Click image for larger version.

    OK...got to know how to do this. I love your quilt! I have an embroidery machine that can take a large hoop. Did you machine embroidery the same pattern repeatedly by just moving the hoop? I have done blocks in my quilt with my machine but I haven't tried to embroidery an all over pattern...but would love to try...but hadn't seen it done. I'm new to this. Please let me know. Thank you.
