My Large Summer Bed Quilt


This is the largest quilt I have yet made – 73” wide by 91” long.  This was a challenge to lay out (thank you Mary), and quilt.  I did in the ditch for the sashing and free motion for all the individual blocks – endless ends to finish off as I went around the flowers!  I added a couple of applique flowers on the back to break up the ivory calico.

One of my favourite quilt patterns for large motif material.  I started this last year, got part way through then it went into the UFO pile.  When I picked it up this year I discovered my poor mathematics – not enough material for the sashing and I couldn’t remember what the material was or where I bought it!.  So I ended up with mixed white and ivory sashing – not that I can easily tell the difference!.
