I’ve been working on this BEHEMOTH quilt for my cousin’s wedding that happened in September last year. I wanted to make it king size so it could fit on his queen size bed but would be big enough if they decided to upgrade. Here’s a couple of progress shots. Not very impressive …
I used the Metro Lattice pattern using the Quick Curve Ruler. It was suuuper easy and the pattern was really well written. I, like many quilters, was pretty intimidated by sewing curves and this made it really simple. The pattern calls for the lattice part to be a solid color, and after putting this together I can see why. Lining up the curved parts gets a little tricky which wouldn’t be noticeable if it was a solid color. But I really wanted to sort of mimic a double wedding ring.
So, without further rambling, here’s the completed flimsy.
I am such a proud quilter right now. This thing has been on and off my sewing table for MONTHS now. My cousin said his favorite color was dark green, and his wife’s is blue/teal, so I thought, “Yeah, I can totally make that work!” Now there’s a his and hers side of the bed.
I have it pin basted now, and I’m killing my shoulder wrenching this giant around my domestic machine. It’ll be worth it in the end, though.
I took this picture as i was making the background pieces and now I just want to make a low volume quilt for myself. 🙂
Happy Friday everyone.
