Dream Big (oopsie) Quilt- HQM Quilt 10

 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.  

 And I am so glad that is is now quilted and ready to be gifted for a special little one.   This is the perfect size quilt for car seats :)    And as I said, just like the original, I used 1 Summer Sweet Charm Pack by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda.  I love being able to whip up a quilt with just 1 Charm Pack, so fun!!!   And speaking of the Charming Baby Quilts book, I ran into a new friend at my quilt retreat that has had Charming Baby Quilts  since February and made all but 1 of the quilts in it, and she is working on that last one now.  How fun is that!!!! 

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 ;) 

And like I said, I am super excited for this quilt to now go to a new little wee one.  Its the perfect Dream Big Summer Sweet quilt just in time for a Sweet Summer Baby ;)    And I so want to do some more giant spiral quilting now, it really is a happy way to finish up a quilt!!! 

And that is Quilt #10 - Dream Big (oopsie)!!  10 Down and only 16 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   So loving this Marathon!!!  

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

  1. 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.

  2. I have done a couple of quilts with a giant spiral. It is so fun!

  3. I love this oopsie quilt. It is just beautiful!

Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
