It's Done!

Okay, I was on a roll so I finished this king size quilt on Tuesday night.  Here it is:

I am soooo happy with it!!!! :)   I just need to bring it to the quilt store in town and then I can put it on our bed.  We also need to make a trip to Wal-Mart to get a black dust ruffle, matching sheets and black valance for the bedroom.

Do you believe that my hubby has already requested his next quilt?  He wants one in browns to work with what we have in the room now.  I told him that he gets one quilt every 7 years (this is his 2nd quilt and we have been married for 14 years)!  But I compromised and told him that I would watch for Joann's to have a 50% off sale and HE would buy all the fabric for me!  Hey, it is for the house so I am not using MY craft money!  LOL!

In the meantime, I am going to work on some other projects.  I think that I am going to start making some lap sized quilts to have on hand to sell or maybe even open a store in Etsy to sell them.  I usually make quilts as I need them but I really enjoy making them and I have so much fabric so why not use it!


  1. This is lovely......I love it.....I tried to make a log cabin one....well lets just say it didn't turn out to good....I have made dozen's of lap quilts....still have them and all my family have one that I made for them for Christmas..... and they are great....the only thing I can say is to make sure you have them long enough for someone who wants to take a nap on the couch.....
