My Quip - Blue Memories In Progress - Piecing

Good Day,

Well, we are working on the construction of Blue Memories... This is gonna be one big quilt.

Based on all the 6-inch and 2-inch blocks, this king-size quilt may top at 114” by 114”; 290 cms square. Thus far there are 292 6-inch and 661 2-inch squares. All squares have a ¼” seam allowance.

Blue Memories is a very different experience for us. There is something of a transcendent experience, a je ne sais quoi as we work on this quilt. The top is coming together in a way that we are very, very pleased. And now to just complete this undertaking.

And it will be quite a large quilt that will fit almost to the boundaries of our longarm, when we start the quilting.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy shop.
