Default Finished! "Broken English"

It felt soooo good to finally sleep under a quilt I made. This is the first quilt I made for ME. For MY bed.

Pattern is Bonnie Hunters Blue Ridge Beauty, mine done in totally random scrappy.

Size is 108" square.

Batting is Hobbs Tuscany 100% Wool

Quilted by a local (non QB) long armer (my frame is not large enough and I did not want to tackle this on a domestic).

Most of the scraps were my own, some from the first quilted item I ever made. Other scraps were collected from QB friends in: US (mostly from Boomerangs, some from trades), Scotland (Boomerangs), England (trades), Australia (trades), and a lot in a trade from my good pal in Canada - all of them English speaking countries so I named this one "Broken English".

First picture is the full quilt before it was quilted. All other pic's are after it was washed (yes, the Hobbs wool batting can be washed and results in a lovely crinkled effect).

Looks super. Had to check again to see where you were located. My boys live in northern Indiana. Did you wash this in your washing machine or go to a Laundromat and use a commercial size?

Tessagin ... I took this one to a laundry mat and used the commercial size front loader. I have a top loader. I did take it home wet and dried it in my dryer on low.
