Great Granny Finished!! (11)

TA - DA!!!!

Many hours
Many yards of thread
Many words

but it is done!!

It is a queen sized beast!

I used Martenique by 3 Sisters for Moda fabric
1 Layer cake and 1 Charm pack

I found the pattern on 

I still have thought of making a regular granny square quilt
I also would like to make my son a quilt before he goes for his surgery
I have a quilt started for my niece for her grad
and I have fabric lined up to make a Swoon quilt

This quilt was a beast to quilt and bind
I was toying with the idea of getting this one
longarm quilted, but then ran out of time.

I just straight lined quilted it
in a cross corner pattern
I found a quilt store that rents a long arm
machine by the day in store, you get a lesson on how to use it
and get to use it for the whole day. 
I plan to try it out....

maybe next time

But looks pretty good on my bed!!

I really wanted to take pictures outside,
but seriously, we still have 3-4 foot snow banks

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Sunday

Gorgeous!!! Love the colors and all the pretty patterns. I'm sure it's worth the hard work and effort.

That turned out wonderful Conni. I rent a long arm with anything queen size and up. It is pricy, they charge by the hour here. You will enjoy the long arm so give it a try:)
