the wedding quilt that wasn't

Here's the first try of a wedding quilt for my niece, Kelsey. She wanted black, white, grey and a bit of some other color. Somehow the quilt that I was thinking would be muted in color turned out dramatic. I still don't know how that happened. Then it was also too small when they moved and got a queen size bed. So now this crazy quilt is in the shop waiting for the person I must have made it for who isn't Kelsey :)

  1. G'day Jamie. That quilt is gorgeous, the colours look fantastic. Well done. Thanks for your comment on my last post Jamie. The embroidery machine does embroider by itself, though you do have to think about where to position the pattern and any writing etc. It stops and tells you when to change threads and all that good stuff.I have just done a couple of face washers and a hand towel and the design was off centre on both face washers, but it's like anything new, it takes time to learn it. I too would love a long arm quilter, but sadly there is no space, not to mention no money for one of them. Take care. Liz...
