    Wink First Bed Sized Quilt

    Here it is! This quilt is going to my brother for a wedding present. Up to now I've only done lap quilts and smaller so I was pretty pleased with how this turned out. It was fairly easy and played very nicely on the long arm frame. I used 4 different whites so each zig-zag is a different one and the blue color is really an eggplant that didn't photograph nicely. No written pattern, just 9" blocks set in rail fence. About 75% of it was sewn on my FW. That little girl moves! Overall it's a large queen sized and DONE ahead of schedule. Whohoo!

    Very, very nice. I see a lot more large quilts in your future with no second thoughts about tackling them. I think the fabrics are wonderful. What a wonderful gift.

    Love a close up of the fabric, the whole picture doesn't show the fabrics - mostly the colour.
    Nice quilt.

    Good point on the fabric detail. The black and eggplant were consistent through the quilt. I had 4 whites. The three on the right were from my boss (who rocks!) when she went to her hometown. I bought the white on the left at my LQS. I had 1/2 yard cuts of each.

    Congratulations on your first "big" quilt! Thanks for showing the fabric detail.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
