    Wow! I love your quilt. Let's hope that your daughter appreciates the endless hours that you spent putting it all together and the beautiful embroidery. It truly a gift from the heart and will be cherished and passed down to generation after generation. Be sure to add an unique label to it. Thanks for sharing.

    I am working on the label. I have created it, but have had my granddaughters here this weekend, so haven''t stitched it out. But I have a little time before Christmas to get it done. I will use the fabric from the backing which is dark blue, with white stitching.

    Just wondering if you can share the pattern name of this quilt. I am going to make my daughter & son-in-law a quilt and she just loves the look of this quilt. Thanks

It is approximately 100 square, for her queen sized bed, with 25 14 inch squares, a crazy patch border and a crazy patch binding. I think it is lovely, but she hasn't seen the finished project. I also made matching pillow shams. I got most of these batiks at the Connecting Threads warehouse sale here in Columbus. This is only my 5th or 6th quilt, plus a few table runners and table cloths. Hope she likes it.

    I did go back and embroider the seams of all of the patches. I learned a lot about my sewing machine doing these. Lots of thread changes on this quilt.

    I used adding machine tape to make this crazy patch inner border with scraps left over from the squares.

    Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the pictures

    Charlotte



    I got carried away and even made a crazy patch binding. But I love the look of it.

    I can see why it took nearly a year to make. Lots of work in it. But it all paid off, it is a gorgeous quilt. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Now we know why it took a year. Lots of work in this one. You did a super job with the stitching. It adds so much.

    So very pretty! Looks like stained glass. Your machine's fancy stitches are perfect for it.
