I went back and looked, and the first photo I have of the beginnings of this quilt is from July 24th. And today is September 28th. Two months it took me to make this quilt. For me, that is a long time. Now it would be one thing if I’d done a ton of sewing otherwise, but I kinda haven’t. The odd quilting bee block here or there, but otherwise? Not much sewing! Lesson I’ve learned? Don’t start a huge quilt when you’re going to be working a lot. Tackle smaller quilts and that way it’s easier to get a project finished and feel that needed sense of accomplishment!
But anyhow – the quilt!
It’s 80″ by 88″ – a full sized quilt, but it’s on a queen sized bed in the above photo.
The pebble quilting, which I’ll never do on a quilt this big again (it took SO long!) really works on this simple pattern. I love it. Especially after the wash and crinkle…
Love how the deer pop since I’ve otherwise used smaller scale prints.
I used the Wonderland polka dots for the binding.
The back – sorry for a kinda dark photo. The brown reads darker in this photo than it actually is.
It’s actually more like this:
I love this quilt. I do. But it was a huge project to get it all finished. No more hexagons or pebble quilting for me for a long time. Improv piecing and stippling, here I come!
It’s for sale in my shop.
