I have to say, it takes a lot of orneriness to do one of these! I decided I HAD to conquer it or it would conquer me (and I'd be a little puddle of jelly on the floor, mumbling weird things @ everyone).

And I become intimate friends with my *$#% seam ripper!

the bobbin case will probably set you back a bit - they aren't cheap for those older models *sigh* the belt should be inexpensive. Those old Singers are wonderful machines!

I love this pattern so much, I think I may steal it,,,,found this page to help me draft and colour - quite a nice site actually!


COlouring in for blocks so you have more of a plan of where you are going.

Thanks for the inspiration! 

that is a great idea! Mine is so scrappy, I just figured out where darks and lights went, made up the blocks, moved furniture out of the way in the living room, laid them out, moved them here and there, and then sewed them together Smiley The pattern I worked from showed bright to pastel batiks, so I really had to rely on laying it out to make sure I was "getting it"

good luck on doing one yourself! I'll have to say that my seam ripper and I became very intimate friends throughout this process!

great job! You should pat yourself on the back!

I've seen 20th quilts that weren't anywhere near that nice Smiley

Beautiful and just the thing for my son, who doesnt want a "girlie" quilt!  May I ask where you got the Judy Martin pattern - is it in one of her books??

I got it out of Love of Quilting ~ Summer of 2005 (July?August?) She has a similar quilt in one of her books..can't remember which one.

It is definitely not a "girlie" quilt. My dh really likes it (though he doesn't mind some girlie quilts around).

what a fun quilt! Makes me nostalgic  Grin

thanks again Smiley

I have to say, it didn't win first place in it's category Sad There was some stiff competition (I was a helper during judging and found out the results before the quilt show opens on Saturday) and I placed third. Just don't tell that I know the results so soon Roll Eyes

Just out of curiosity, how long did it take you to accomplish such fabulousness?  (And I mean just this quilt - clearly you've spent a long time perfecting your skills up to this point.)

I have wanted to do this quilt for a couple of years. I kept getting the pattern out, but wasn't sure what colors/fabrics to use and so I let it sit on the back burner for a while...

I got inspired to use these colors and bought some of the fabrics over Christmas break - and  then worked mostly from my stash. I started it in January, worked like a madwoman for about 3 weeks, set it aside because I was frustrated, picked it back up again about 3 weeks ago...so, a month and a half or so. I'm glad my family supports my obsession hobby Smiley and don't panic when supper is late and the house gets messy, or homeschool assignment don't get corrected right away  Roll Eyes

awesome. i live in the quilt capitol of the world and right now is our annual quilt show and from what i have seen that is up there with the big leagues

Oh, I'm SO wishing I were there this week! This year I couldn't make it and went to a regional show - NO comparison!

Thanks for the compliment - I'd love to rub elbows with the big leagues (not just take classes from them!).

yes, the quilt is HUGE, it is a King-Sized quilt. This is the first time I made a quilt so big  Grin

My dh and my 14yodd are holding the quilt up over our back porch, I had to go out into the yard to get it all in the picture.

Thanks for all the good words, now hoping the judges at the quilt show will like it!
