Description

My dog's nails snagged my aunt's old bedspread and she couldn't find a new one that she liked. So I made her a king-sized quilt! She picked out the fabric and I chose a simple, yet interesting, pattern. My husband took my son to his parents' house for a few days and I was able to complete the top in 5 days! I had it long-arm quilted by a local quilt shop owner and it turned out really well. The pictures do not do it justice. The colors are much more vibrant. I presented this quilt to my aunt as an early 60th birthday present and she loves it!:grin:

Just beautiful and an amazing first quilt!

Janquilter Thanks! I had taken a beginning quilt class at my local quilt shop and one of the first things the instructor said was "don't pick a large quilt to be your first quilt." Ha! I already had this in mind which was why I took the class. ;)

wow you are ambitious, a king size quilt for your first one. It turned our wonderfully. Great job.

Seeneed Thank you! I definitely was ambitious but I had so much fun with it!

I seem to do that a lot - start with something difficult instead of working my way up. Great job!

HawkFan Go big or go home, right! ;)

Pretty much ;) My very first cross stitch project was a detailed carousel horse and it was for a friend so how it looked was important. I had no clue.
