Monster Quilt equals Long Arm!!!

Yesterday I got to visit Let's Quilt to do a little long arm action for the second time!!  And once again, I had so much fun!!! It was nice to have a little experience under my belt from the  first time so that I felt a little more confident, and subsequently was a little quicker.  This time I was working on a king size quilt and it was a monster. Sadly, I can't show you the quilt (It will be published next year) but I can show you the back :)

After playing around with several designs in my head and on paper, I finally decided to go with this concept. I really like the way it creates a patchwork look and it really lends itself to the quilt design.  And it was oh so much fun to quilt.  It's not perfectly even by any means, but I am super happy with how it turned out.  Each of those little squares are about 7"'s.  So fun!!!


Now I just need to make some more monster size quilts so I have an excuse to go back down and play again.  Oh, I know, maybe I could finish the King and Queen size versions of my Braided Irish Chains ;)  So many projects, so little time :)

    Hey, I didn't see you mention it, but I got a great surprise in McCall's Quick Quilts Oct/Nov 2012 issue that showed up last week. there is a quilt called "Rosy Lullabye" and guess who designed it? Melissa Corry - i said "Oh!!! I know her! but I didn't see that in her blog"

  17. I agree with CathyK.....I want to see the front. When you can share the front, let us know where it's published. I love reading about a project here and then revisiting it in a different format. Really adds to the feeling of "knowing" the quilt and the quilter.

  18. Looks great from the back . . . looking forward to the front. Was it hard to learn the long arm when it's not your own machine?
