Love the fabric you found and it will be perfect in this quilt...cannot wait to see...sorry can't help cut honest I am;-)
True That's ok... I need to finish up my Labyrinth quilt before I get started on this one anyway. I'm trying to only have pieces for one quilt cut up at a time. It helps me be a little more organized... or a least a bit less messy. And cutting shouldn't take too long. At least I'm cutting 2 1/2 inch strips and not 1 1/2 inch strips. The first quilt I made was nothing but 1 1/2 inch strips. I think I cut 4-5 yards of them.
Eek! That is a lot of cutting. I have my Sizzix under my arm, my bags are packed and I am just waiting for you to send the ticket so I can start cut
ting Stonehenge for you. ;)
Sewnsew hah! Thanks for the thought. Hopefully it won't be too bad. It will probably be more annoying to cut the strips into 6 1/2 or 10 1/2 in pieces. Oh well... I'll definitely have to replace my rotary blade before I start this one.
Always glad to help.
You are flying along. The fabrics are fabulous.
Holy moly you are flying and this will be simply gorgeous and manly when done!
Very nice... I love the colors and the pattern.. it really is going to look wonderful. I actually half one of the bali pops in that color. :)
I really like the pattern and batiks are perfect for a masculine quilt. He'll surely love it!
It's looking good!
You are flying along here!
Do you expect us to just believe you??? Where are the pictures?!!
Mouseinmypocket Much, much better...and i was very worried whether this one had passed inspection and I am now confident it has;-). It is really a gorgeous quilt...he Is going to love it.
This is an incredible quilt and I so love the picture of Mouse just lying there quite stately!
True thanks! It is HUGE. I almost dread the construction. I'm going to have to do this one in quadrants, and not looking forward to piecing the final 2 halves together... Plus, I really need to find someone who could get this quilted before Christmas... I don't think that will happen.
This is looking so great!! I really like this pattern!!!
Sariecherries thanks Sarah! It's coming out really well, and making it with Jellyrolls means it actually went together pretty fast. I HATE cutting strips. They always end up a little off.
SO gorgeous! You're doing great! That's a huge top!
Grendelskin Thanks! And, yes it is HUGE. I didn't realized how big it was until I got it all laid out.
Oh I love seeing the one section all sewn together...truly an awesome quilt he will love it! But it is huge!!!!
You are going to need a winch (hmm, is that the right spelling) to get this thing from your house to the car when you find a quilter! What an undertaking and I can't believe how fast you are getting this done. It's beautiful, manly and quite impressive!
This is really beautiful. Love the pattern you chose also. Very big quilt!! Your dad is sure to love this..!
Oh, what a great gift for your dad. This is a great pattern. Just want to know if you have slept since 11/3. You got this done so fast, I would most likely be still cutting. Hope you will post a picture of Dad with his quilt for us.
Looking great! Such a good choice of macho-looking fabrics!
Truly gorgeous and so perfect for your dad...and excellent news you can get it quilted!!!! It is huge truly a wonderful gift. And I agree have you slept at all;-)??
Firetones Quilt455 Terryt1955 True I sleep... I just sew from the time I get home from work until I go to bed most of the week. I enjoy doing it. Though I think my husband would prefer it if I did more useful things... like make dinner. And I'll be sure to post a photo of dad with the quilt after Christmas.
Dinner? I heard rumor that once this was a common practice! Thank God my kids are grown or they'd be screwed up for sure.
Well, I know Dinner is important so thank goodness my husband cooks cause I am in the sewing room.
Looks fantastic!! Great job!!!
I really love how it turned out.. you should be so proud.
He will love it and be so proud of you!!! It turned out so nice. It matches the kitty so perfectly.
OMG I can not believe this one is all done!!! WOW and he will love it as how could he not...really a wonderful and loving present makes me cry!
