… and purples!
It was finally time to get to work on the wedding quilt for my cousin, so Burton and I got to work making big HSTs for the Moda Love quilt. Thirty-six 9.5 inch HSTs to be exact. Working on two quadrants at a time, we laid them out on the design bed…
And we got sewing. (Well I did…. Burton went and had nap.) And before we knew it, I had those quadrants done, so I laid out the last two and they sewed up just as fast.
Then it was just a matter of rotating and sewing them all together.
As you can see, it gave us a good-sized quilt very quickly (72″ square) but we wanted this one really big.
So we got to work cutting and sewing borders and before long…
I had to take it outside because it was too big to show it all on the design bed. 90″ square now. I really recommend this pattern if you want to make a big quilt in a hurry.
Now I’ve got a date with Mom at the end of the month to get it quilted, in plenty of time for the November wedding!

This one is simply gorgeous Val! What a lucky cousin!!
What a beautiful quilt! Nice work in short time!
That is beautiful.
With the purples and the blacks, it looks very Amish inspired. GORGEOUS!
That’s a lot of WOW factor!!!
Very pretty, and of course, Lord Burton cut out to snooze while the real work is going on…
That is a spectacular quilt!!! I love how you use black fabrics and they give the design a totally different look.
It’s beautiful, as is your sewing companion.
The newlyweds are going to love this beauty!
This will undoubtedly be the favorite gift at the wedding. I love those deep, deep colors. Lord Burton seems to make the difficult decisions and leave the piddling sewing to the lowly servants. l0l
Blessings and hugs,
