This quilt was finished, even to the binding, late last year. It took several years to do, so I was well over it by that point. It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern (Quiltworx.com) and finished king size. I love her patterns because they are beautiful and the instructions are very well organized. Maybe some day I’ll even make another one.
For now, I have dragged this quilt out and I’m putting a hanging sleeve on it so I can enter it in the show for one of my local guilds, the Smoky Mountain Quilters of Franklin, NC. The quilting was by a friend who’s done my quilting for years–WAY too much to try to quilt a king size on my home machine!
So this is a second “finish” for this quilt, getting it ready to display. I’m glad I got it out of the closet and ready to show 🙂 Quilt shows are a motivator sometimes. And, since I’m counting this as my August Finish, I’m sending it to Aunt Marti as well!
Beautiful! Feels like I’m looking at a kaleidoscope…..
Thanks! Our phone is out, but I’ll try you tomorrow.
Wow! That is a stunner!
Thanks! And thanks for visiting 😃
Beautiful quilt! Can’t wait to see it up close and personal at the Smoky Mountain Quilters Show next month.
I’m looking forward to the show, too 😊
It is beautiful. I love the colors.
Thank you! And thanks for visiting.
Nice quilt, Mary! You must be having gigantic feelings of accomplishment. I’m working on Judy Niemeyer’s leaf placemats, can’t imagine tackling such a large quilt.
Yes, well, 5 years approximately…
Congratulations! It’s beautiful and well worth the time. Ann
Hi Ann! I think of you often, not that you’d know it! Good to hear from you!
I love it! Judy’s quilts are always a show stopper:). Great job! Enjoy the show!
Thanks for visiting and commenting😊
Very pretty. I’ve heard Niemeyer’s patterns are well done. Good to hear that confirmed. However, if someone showed me this quilt, I would not have guessed you made it! 🙂
Well, I DID start it 5 years ago, and a lot can change in that time. This suits the side of me that wants everything lined up in marching order 😉
Wow, what a beautiful quilt! What are the dimensions? It looks like it’s a square…
This is a king size quilt designed by Judy Niemeyer. You can see the pattern on her site: http://www.quiltworx.com/patterns/amazon-star/
It finishes 104″ x 104″, and it took me about 3 years to make. Admittedly, I did many other projects concurrently! thanks for visiting!
