Vince’s Quilt is Done

And, he said . . I like it but I wish it was longer!  I guess I should’ve made it one block longer but I didn’t!  It ended up 45″ x 57″.  And, it’s Finish #7 for 2010.

The backing is flannel with cute little chickens.

The next project . . I think these are the fabrics I’m going to use.

Yes, it looks boring here but in the EQ drawing, it looks great.  We will see! 🙂

    Oooh, the new fabrics don’t look boring at all to me, they look wonderful! My mom would flip over those!

    I like small quilts to snuggle with. Anything much bigger than about 60 x 60 I find I rarely use.

    looks great. 7 finishes in 2010= 7 finishes in 3 weeks. FANTASTIC!!! I’ll be thrilled if I can get 4 finishes by the end of the month. I just might.

    The quilt looks great. I do like it better with the borders. Can’t wait to see the magic you work with the next set of fabrics!

    The first “nap” quilt that I made for my husband, he too, said that it needed to be longer. Sooooo, I added another row after it was already quilted! I took off the binding on the bottom and sewed another row on a la quilt as you go method. The second “nap” quilt that I made for him was long enough for him to wrap it under his feet about 14 inches. He also likes his quilts really fluffy, so I go easy on the quilting. Believe me, these would never win at a quilt show, but he likes them.

    I just measured my husband’s “nap” quilt and it is 48″ X 77″. He’s 5’9″ tall and not very wide. He covers up with his “nap” quilt when he watches tv in his recliner.

      I’m thinking about 48 x 65 would have been better but it’s done and that’s the way it’s going to stay. Maybe some day I’ll make him another one.

    After reading Judy’s blog for months and months, I now firmly believe that there has got to be more than ONE Judy!!!

    Let’s face it–everyday she has a new quilt done or at least on her design wall,
    bakes her bread,
    travels to places with Vince,
    cares for Chad,
    prepares yummy meals-along with pictures for us all to see,
    Keeps up with 2 blogs, reads her email,
    answers her email,
    has a ghostsewer in each room (as in ghostwriter)

    Come on Judy—tell the truth….you are a twin- right?!
    you never sleep at night!?
    You have more hours in the day than we do!?
    There just has to be something!!!!

    Now, wait just a doggone minute…didn’t Vince have a complaint another time about a quilt you made for him and you blogged about it? I can’t recall his complaint that time….but I sure hope that other time the complaint wasn’t that it was too BIG!!! LOL
