The day has come that I can finally say: I finished!

It feels so exhilarating finishing a massive quilt top! This sucker is 7 ft by 7 ft! It contains 49- 12 inch churn dash blocks! Each of those are made up of 1 square, 8 rectangles, and 4 HST units! This quilt is epic. I. LOVE. IT.

That’s a lot of cutting I had to do. (Probably my least favorite part)

I hung my quilt top on my “design corner” this morning to finish it up. I hoped to finish in time for the Kate Spain blog hop hosted by Blossom Heart Quilts but running short on Kona Ash, not finding it in local stores, procrastinating to order it, then waiting, and making 3 super totes, delayed my finish. But all good things take time. I almost wanted to just leave the blocks on the wall it felt like I was in this amazing summer garden and I was being all nerdy and giddy twirling in front like a little girl :)

I chose to make a few different colored blocks with different arrangements as well. I think the overall look is fantastic!

I even made a filled in churn dash. I hope to add a little embroidery here :)

    • Thank you so much! I’ve been contemplating what to do next. I already have the batting but its natural so I’m thinking I might want to buy some warm and white or try Hobbs 80/20. The whites are a bit see-through so I’m not sure if I can get away with the natural. I’ve also been thinking since its intended to be a bed quilt that quilters muslin would be totally exceptable for a backing, right?! And hand quilting am I nuts?! It’s a 7 ft quilt lol but I have the urge to hand quilt it in the middle of July!

    • Thank you thank you! Since I’m still ridiculously excited about this quilt I ran out bought backing and batting yesterday. I’m planning to baste today. I think I may be crazy enough to hand quilt this monster!

    • Thank you! This quilt really meant a lot to me from the beginning. It is my first queen size quilt. Honey Honey flew off the shelves fast and I didn’t want to settle with a smaller quilt. The additional colors were more of necessity at first but now I just love them! I made sure to pick some bright colors to keep with the original feel! I love it! I’m glad you do too!

  1. This is so amazing! I love churn dashes, and this one turned out so pretty and feminine – which usually I don’t love, but this one! This one is gorgeous and lovely
