My Quip - NT Celebration – Top Completed – Progress Update


The top of Andy’s and my new king size quilt project, NT Celebration, has been completed. Right now our NT Celebration is 101” (256.5 cms) wide and 113” (287 cms) long.

The following are what we were requested in order to produce this king size quilt.

  • Please use fabrics from my own, my husband’s, and my mother’s gently used shirts.
  • We would like to use the main colors of red, white, and blue.
  • We would like to have a separate but merging effect of the colors.
  • We would like it to have a somewhat patriotic attitude.

Sure, we said. We can try. I had an idea.

And with CorelDraw X7 I translated and drafted my initial designs.

Next was the application of the three key colors, red, white and blue.

The provided fabrics were all cut into 4 ½” and 2 ½” squares.
