It's Done, It's Done, It's FINALLY Done!

Yep, that's a lot of blue squares...a lot of 1 inch squares.

I stupidly thought, I liked making this blue quilt - why not make one for my king size bed????

Oh, that's right, it's a lot, lot bigger than a 7" x 10" quilt. Here's a detail:

See that all 1" squares did not work for me, and several 4x4 solid blocks and striped squares jumped in. Thank goodness, or I'd still be sewing. It is mostly blues, mostly scraps, and most importantly, now it's done.

On to other...smaller...things.

Wedding Quilt

I've been following Stephanie's wedding plans over on her blog, and thought I'd share this. My guest book at my wedding was just some fabric squares for everyone to sign. I pre-cut & ironed to freezer paper to make sure it was easy to write on. My bridesmaids had to bully some people into it, but I got a square from almost everyone. I then used the colors from the wedding (blue and white) to make this quilt.

It's king size, so it's huge. It was on our bed for a while, but the cat was starting to destroy it, so I had to move it. Here's a detail of the signed squares.

This was so much fun to read through, and fun to make as well. I hope this gives some ideas to others.
