In honor of SewCalGal's Virtual Sew-cial - International Quilting Day
I am working on my KING SIZE SCRAP QUILT....here is a picture of the quilt under the machine...what a BEAR to quilt!!!
I have never made a king size quilt before, and believe me, at this time of my life I REALLY didn't need to decide to make one now...but I loved this Wiggly Whimsy Scrap Quilt from http://rubybluequilts.blogspot.com/ she started a quilt along a couple of months ago and I decided to make this quilt.
The reason I wanted to make a king size one was because I can never get a quilt large enough to fit my 4 poster king size bed...it has side rails and the comforters always are way too short...and I don't use a dust ruffle. I loved the look of this scrappy quilt so I forged ahead.
Not difficult to make the top...but I decided to use a sheet for the back and add a border all around......what was I thinking?????? The back has given me nightmares. Finally I have it together and am quilting my brains out...just straight line, but what a nightmare to get this thing under the machine! I chose a 'fluffy' polyester batting because I didn't want it to be toooooo heavy!
After it is finished and washed I will post a picture...wish me luck!!
HAPPY QUILTING DAY!!!! Don't forget to COMMENT for the giveaway.........
