a massive quilt!!!!

This quilt is a whopper! 104" x 92". Jacki made this quilt from a block swap she was involved in last year. Jacki has made some extra's to get enough to make this quilt that is going to be gifted to newly weds. Jacki wanted very simple quilting with straight lines. I quilted straight lines on the sashing & borders, then with the same Maderia poly neon ( brown ) I crossed hatched the plain & pinwheel blocks. Maybe if you click on the photos you will see the quilting better?
 As you can see I had problems getting this on my washing line for a photo!

A view of the row of pinwheels for the backing...............a fun quilt!

I picked up my next Sewing Essential Project from work the other day & put the final stitches in it today.

A handy scissor keep & cute scissor fob/pincushion. They go beautifully with my block holder.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow, that is a big quilt. Do you do the straight line quilting with some sort of channel lock? Forgive me--I'm not a longarm quilter and I don't know the terms.

  2. Wow I didn't realise Jacki's quilt turned out so BIG!!! Doesn't it look great. Who is sewing on the binding?! Good to see your scissor holder and fob :-)

  3. Jacki's quilt looks wonderful, bet she will be thrilled. I spotted your bright block but mine was harder to find

  4. Wow, what a nice quilt and your quilting is good to see at the backing! I love your scissor keep and fob, beautiful fabric and such a good match with your blockholder!

  5. Hi Leeanne, that is one Huge quilt !!! It looks great with what you have done on it. I love the little scissor keep & fob, lovely colours in it, you have been busy my friend :-) Julie xo

  6. Wow! that is huge! I like pinwheel blocks, they are simple but give a lovely effect.

  7. Leeanne,

    You are braving tackling that huge quilt with your Bernina. My hats off to you...


  8. That is a seriously big quilt! Kudos to you for getting it quilted, the finished result is great :)
