I’m really pleased to have gotten these squares sewn up into a king sized quilt top! It really wasn’t a planned quilt – or not planned for this moment, anyway, but now that it’s done, I can’t wait to get it quilted and on the bed.
As I mentioned before, I had this one planned in my mind for some time, and thought it would be a good opportunity to put all my favorite Denyse Schmidt prints in one quilt. I love me a plus quilt, and knew I’d like the look with all these smaller scale prints.
Since this one was meant for our king sized bed, I upped the size of the squares – using five 8″ squares (or a 1/4 yard cut of each fabric). And despite its large size, it came together rather quickly (a bonus in my book!). I even made a backing immediately and got it off in the mail to be quilted. I don’t send too many quilts out to be quilted, but I think I draw the line at a king sized quilt. I knew if I attempted it it might sit forever unfinished in the closet. And with the temps as they are in VT, I’ll need to put this one to use immediately!
