Trent and Haillie’s Wedding Quilt

I have been frantically working on a wedding quilt for Trent and Haillie’s wedding present.  I was running right down to the last hours.  The wedding is Saturday and I put the last stitches in the binding last night.  It’s such a relief to have it finished!

The quilt is from Schnibbles Times Two: Quilts from 5″ or 10″ Squares (That Patchwork Place).  It was a simple quilt to sew and it went together over the weekend, backing and all.

I had won the kit a year or more ago from a contest Charming Chatter had hosted.  I love the color selection….and want to thank all of you who offered fabric when I miss cut.

Here’s my quilting on the quilt.  It’s isn’t marvelous as this is the first time I have used The Pajama Quilter’s Funky Feathers. I can see there is a lot I need to work on to improve but for the first time trying it’s okay.  A couple times my leaves flattened out…a couple times I overlapped on the swirls but all in all…okay.  My machine isn’t really steady and it’s hard to overlap stitching.


I will definitely be trying the Funky Feathers again…next time, I won’t be using it on a quilt that I need to get done by a deadline though.  Once I got in the groove it was okay but like with anything new, the first little bit can be challenging.

I debated about whether I wanted to show a close up of the quilting but then thought…heck, I am an honest gal and I can admit, I don’t do anything perfectly….

I am really looking forward to the wedding and wish them both MANY happy years!!

Today I am hooking up with Confession of a Fabric Addict.  This was my June UFO.  Check out Patchwork times to see more UFO progress.

    The quilting DOES look marvelous! Funky Feathers was obviously designed to have a fun-filled whimsical look to it and your quilting captures that light-hearted mood. After all, you wouldn’t want it to look all stiff and formal now, would you??? Relax, you did great!

    You did such a fantastic job on the quilt and quilting looks great! I’d be thrilled if my quilting looked half as good. The new couple will be honored with such a work of art. ;-> Toni Anne

    It’s fabulous and I KNOW they will treasure it for years too come! You are too hard on yourself! I would be over the moon if I could quilt like that! I really like the thread you used for the quilting too!

    Gorgeous! I only wish I could quilt as good as that…I’m having to do what little (bad!) quilting I can do on my mother-in-law’s machine, which is not even a long arm. My Singer absolutely can NOT do quilting…piecing, yes, but not quilting. I think you did a great job!
