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)

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?

crafter2243 by crafter2243 31 May 2018

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

crafter2243 by crafter2243 31 May 2018

I quilted once with invisible thread on a background with swirls. Almost made me blind.

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.

crafter2243 by crafter2243 31 May 2018

Ha, ha as fast as I use up scraps, I create more. Never ending

Most of the quilting was done before breaking the wrist.

It is beautiful!
How did you get it finished using only one hand?

Exactly what I was thinking, how did you manage?!

crafter2243 by crafter2243 31 May 2018

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.

toogie by toogie 31 May 2018

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
