Giant Quilt Commission DONE!! Whoo-hoo!


Click to enlarge any photos.

Drum roll, pleeze!!  Here, my faithful readers is the completely finished quilt commissioned by my dear friends in Amsterdam. It is a huge piece of work, clocking in at about 100 inches by 113 inches – slightly larger than a California King.  It is really quite stunning, (if I do say so myself!), AND they just love it.


It has been raining lately and it is still too wet to lay it out for proper photo-taking, so here are a few close-ups of the stunning machine quilting by Mary Vaneecke. We chose a gorgeous variegated blue thread.  Because of the strong geometry and symmetry, I chose a delicious meandering swirl pantograph.


If you want to see some of the progress photos I took as I was making this baby, click here, here and here.  And here is what the entire quilt front looks like, pieced but not yet quilted. Oh, and here is what the back looks like.

  1. there is nothing like a "done" quilt! It is a beauty and wonderful that they are happy with it too. Not all commissions have such happy endings.
