So now that I have finished putting THE MAN quilt top together… I can say I have learned a lot… this is my 10th quilty creation and I feel more confident!!!
Here is the bottom half of the quilt completed…
And here is the whole glorious quilt top ready for sandwiching 🙂
|overall size now is 70 x 83 inches|
First of all.. it looks good but there was a lot of fitting things into place that took place on the back of this quilt top… I did fix any seams that got turned wrong so it irons easily. I have a friend who is gonna post a different way to sew on cornerstones with sashing early next year… I will blog about that and link you to her blog in case you have an upcoming project including sashing with cornerstones 🙂
Secondly, I am overall pleased with all my effort and even though my square in a squares wound up a little wonky (those are the bright blue squares) I have made peace with their ending not looking like square in a square at all… this was an ambitious pattern for me and overall I think I came out successful… the quilt top lays flat and has not bulges or saggy spots 🙂
Finally… here are some of the stencils I am waiting on to start the quilting…
You can see this will be a time intensive quilt to stitch but well worth the effort! My honey is very excited about the MAN QUILT!
While I have been sewing on my wonderful Fiona… my honey has been decorating the front of the house for Christmas 🙂
Isn’t it all so festive! I love the soldier guarding our front door 🙂
