BIG Quilt

It's happening people - I am making a BIG quilt!

I'm keeping it fairly simple because it is the first time I have attempted a quilt larger than a baby quilt.  It  won't even fit on my table (which is going to make basting interesting but I'll worry about that when I get there).

I'm using two charm packs (one from a local shop and the one I bought in Bath) and some grey fabric I already had to make a chevron quilt (the inspiration for which can be found here).  The charm packs are 2wenty thr3e and Comma.

I have been through both charm packs and pulled out ten squares in 6 colour themes (including two white/low volume rows for each end).

I am excited to be working on a BIG project!

What's everyone else up to?

  1. oh I really like this already and I've only seen one strip! I'll have to keep an eye on it.

  2. Never fear the big quilt - it's just lots of baby quilts put together - lol. I love the chevron pattern, looking forward to seeing your progress next week.

  3. Love your progress sew far! Those fabrics are looking fabulous together! And I agree with Serena... Don't fear the big quilt! I am working on a 100" x 100" project right now and I only have 6.5" to the right of needle on my little Janome. Take it one step at a time. You can do this!
