What a gorgeous quilt!! Some one is going to be very happy with that.
Very nice. Hugs
Really a great job. Very masculine. Does the boy get to keep it?
Absolutely. He graduates from the orphanage and at 18 years he is on his own. My church donates every year a big quilt to each of the graduates (5 of them this year)
nice job angie, someone will love this!!! ox doris
I hope so. At least he will know that someone cares
Beautiful. A true labor of love!
You are an amazing quilter and generous woman! The orphanage must love to see what you do next, and we do too. I don't know how you see to sew black. It's hard for me to see anyway. Is it machine quilted or by hand? (and a one arm hand at that!) It must be by machine.....
This looks a good size too. Is it full size?
It is a 70x90 inches and meant for a young man. Yes I machine quilted it and the majority was done before I broke my wrist. I did not do as much quilting as I would have liked. The dark color did not bother me since it is on the backside.
I like black as it is so dramatic but it's hard for me to see to sew. Can't tell where I'm at-lol
I quilted once with invisible thread on a background with swirls. Almost made me blind.
Nice job, Angie...thanks for a peek at the back too!
Thanks. I know you would have asked to see the backside.
Thank you. It decreased the scrap bin that is overflowing
You can never empty a scrap bin. I am 13 quilts into the effort. The scary part is the 13 quilts that were hiding in there! The bin is a bankers box.
Ha, ha as fast as I use up scraps, I create more. Never ending
Beautiful design with great colour scheme.
Thank you. Also reduce the amount of scraps I had.
something tells me you did not take a rest to let your wrist and shoulder heal....hhmm....
But the quilt is beautiful. Your quilt will make somebody feel so lucky to become the new owner. You did a great and wonderful job!! hugs/love Gerry
Most of the quilting was done before breaking the wrist.
Well done Angie, serviceable colours and good size. Love Chris
Thanks Chris. This one is for a young man
Beautiful quilt! That will make someone very happy.
Thank you. I hope it will provide some comfort
This is gorgeous!
It is beautiful!
How did you get it finished using only one hand?
Exactly what I was thinking, how did you manage?!
Fortunately my 4 fingers are free. The wrist and thumb are in a cast and fortunately straight. So I was be able to guide the quilt through straight lines. I had to do he binding by machine since hand sewing was impossible.
My word! Maybe I should go stay with you Angie. You could have my quilt done before I could make up my mind, broke wrist and all!!!-lol
