My Quilt

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I had finished sewing the 1000 squares back on Feb 28, 2020. I sewed a black border onto it and contacted my friend's sister, who has a huge long-arm quilting machine setup. She makes quilts and does quilting for her income. At that point, Covid shutdown had just happened so we decided to wait. In the meantime, I found the fabric I wanted for the backing and since it's base color was closer to navy, I ripped off the black border and put on a navy border. About a month ago, I made arrangements to meet the sister in a parking lot to hand off my supplies. She told me it would be about a month before she'd get to it, but it would be in line. I met her in another parking lot on Monday to exchange again. I spent last evening and today on the binding.

She used navy on the back. The swirls picked up on the swirl pattern on the backing fabric.

That is so cool! 1000 squares is quite a challenge ( just like the puzzles you do)

So very beautiful!! I love it every bit. I really like the backing fabric you chose as well. The quilting and the variegated thread really add to it. Enjoy being cozy in your beautiful workmanship over this holiday!

Did you sew it as a single project? I've heard some people sew these type squares as starters and stops when sewing other projects and then eventually have enogh for a secondary quilt. I've never done that. Just curious. Your quilt is truly amazing!!

I did sew it as one project. I sewed it one row at a time and after I had completed 10 rows, I really could have walked away from it. But I kept on.

Wow! Yes, I understand the temptation to walk away. That is a large project. I know you are so very glad you stuck it out. It's so beautiful!

Itís a beautiful quilt! The wonderful colors really flow well. One thousand squares is amazing! How big is each square? Nice work!

Squares

Each square is 2Ē finished. 25 squares per row x 40 rows + 2Ē wide binding. Most fabrics are repeated 2-3 times. The first picture shows it on a double bed. Itís for me. I wanted it to be more generous than a typical throw size in both length and width. In reality, itís probably close to a twin size.
