I don't know how but while making stars to use up scraps....I ended up with one block smaller..by quite a bit! I just put the matching piece on to the side short and pray this works! So far it doesn't look too bad.
Boy! this is soooo way outside my box.... joint in the fun and lets see what happens.

I used the back-basting/needle turn applique method and it is hand quilted.
I'm sure others of you out there have done this quilt and I would love to see them.
After 1 1/2 years, I finally finished the wedding quilt for my son and DIL. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. I have named it Dresden Garden since it is a combination of Dresden Plate and Garden Path. This was my first attempt at a lap quilt ( each square is quilted, then the squares are sewn together). This method worked very well since I don't have enough floor space to lay out a queen size quilt. They will be getting it at the end of the month. Hope they like it!
I have been working with some beautiful dragonfly stained glass effect print from Freedom Fabrics Deco Delight collection constructing a quilt to be raffled for our local Relay For Life. A gracious friend quilted it on her Bernina 820. I have a few spots to do (corners and one spot where bobbin thread ran out but top continued to stitch) but otherwise it is quilted. I used the Casablanca pattern from Blank Quilting for the top -- added a row on each side of the center area and added two borders.

I love surfing the internet for links and now organizing them here on this thread for all of us to enjoy.

Had a heck of a time getting the corners to tuck properly for the diagonal bands, but it finally went quite well.
I love surfing the internet to find cool links. I created this thread to store links for ideas on storing and folding fabrics.
