Craftster Lap Quilt Swap Fall Edition Finished!


I finally finished this Craftster Lap Quilt Swap Quilt! It is the biggest quilt that I have made to date. It is 82 x96 inches and I could not find a place to hang it for a full on shot! Therefore, it had to drag a little on the ground.:)

This quilt was started last summer and it went through two rounds of the Craftster Lap Quilt Swap so I received 22 blocks from various quilters around the United States.


I pieced the backing together with a strip of the lavendar from the front and some scrappy strips that were left over. I used a 3" grid quilting pattern for the quilting. I am so happy that it is done and I love the way it came out! It now resides on our full size bed.

Happy Thursday!

All I can say is WOWEE!!! What an accomplishment! Your mother sent me pics and one of you at the machine with that thing over your shoulder! It must be heavy. I've never done anything bigger than a baby quilt. I know you are proud of it and rightfully so. It is beautiful!

It is terrific, Audrey! I'm a big fan of purple anyway, and this one looks good enough to eat!

How's the pregnancy coming along? What's your due date again? (Sorry, I've been having senior moments here!)
