It is Week 10 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and this one was cutting it super close :) I have been gone out of town this week, teaching 7 quilting classes and having such a blast!!! And I knew I wouldn't be back until later today and still needed to do a marathon quilt . So I decided to take one with me that I could quilt on my home machine in the evenings, after class. So here it is, the Dream Big (oopsie) quilt!!!
So why is it called the Dream Big (oopsie) quilt . . .because this was actually the original Dream Big quilt that I was making for my Charming Baby Quilts book. However, when I finished the quilt top, I just wanted a little more print and a little less background in it. So I redid some quilt math, and made a new Dream Big quilt top in the exact same fabrics, just with larger print areas :) And this poor Oopsie has been waiting ever since to get finished.
Since I was quilting this on my home machine, I figured I might as well quilt something that I can't quilt on the longarm :) Which means, giant spiral!!! This takes a little bit of time to quilt, but I just love the way it looks when it's all done. So Great!!! And I have a video tutorial on this Giant Spiral Quilting right here, just in case you want to try it out yourself ;)
It is a cute quilt. I love doing the spiral quilting too. Yes, it does take a bit longer to do but it is very well worth it as the results do look fantastic.ReplyDelete
