It's *big*

I know some of you may have thought that this would never happen, but I've finally finished the Winding Ways quilt top. ;) Yes, that's just the top that's finished. The next step will be to make the backing and take everything to my friend Gerda, who has promised to baste it for me on her longarm when she gets time. I don't even want to think about trying to baste something of this size, though I am going to quilt it myself on my Bernina 630. Anyway, this is a milestone in the making of this large quilt -- I really do prefer making smaller ones. ;)

  1. Wow, it's beautiful. I know what you mean about preferring the smaller ones. I have my Iowa (Carolina) Christmas from Quiltville to finish and it will be huge. It's already huge and it still needs it's last border. I'm going to try to do it all myself, and I'm kinda scared, lol.

  4. Wow! I cannot believe how quickly you got that top done. You are amazing. Have you decided how you're going to quilt it? That is one big quilt to do. Good thing cooler weather is coming - quilting weather!

  5. Thanks, Marcella. :) It didn't feel as though I did it quickly. ;) I have decided how I'm going to quilt it, though of course that could change between now and the actual "execution", but I'm having trouble deciding what color(s) of thread to use. I'll be glad of some cooler weather to work on this!
