I wanted to make something special for my boyfriends grandmother. She is such a sweet lady and she had given me a bunch of her old material some of which very large, 17 yards to be exact. SO I came to the conclusion that I would make her a quilt. The quilt itself is a bit larger then a full sized bed..
this is my very first quilt and I got the pattern and inspiration from here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=183628.msg1914207;topicseen#msg1914207
so without ado here the pics are.
this is the whole thing, I apologize for the wrinkles, I didn't have anyone to hold it up for me.
close up of the back, I didn't know how to do the corners so I just improved. and yes, it is silk around it for binding
this is a close up of the light blue material the color is a bit off but you get the idea
And last but not least this is a close up of the dark blue pattern
like I have said before this is my first quilt and I really like the way it turned out, although some of the stitches are a bit wonky..
