And yes, this quilt top may look rather familiar to those readers who regularly stop by here. It is based on the original Milk and Cookies quilt that I made in June this year. I have worked hard to finish this quilt this week, and am really pleased with the overall result.
I loved making this quilt the first time, and it certainly was no hardship to make it again. This quilt features many of my favorite fabrics - from stash - as well as some lovely hand screen printed fabrics by Aunty Cookie (Shannon Lamden). I have omitted a few prints that are no longer available and added several new prints to the mix.
This quilt measures 80 inches x 64 inches, and although it is big the basting and quilting all went surprisingly well. The hardest part was taking pictures of such a large quilt; the adverse weather conditions that we've had this week also did not help to make it any easier.
For those of you who, like me, enjoy the numbers - a double set of quilting lines to outline all seam lines from edge to edge involved:
- 7520 inches or
- 208 yards or
- 191m of straight line quilting!
Again, I've loved making this quilt, and my customer has been an absolute dream to work with. I am quietly confident that this quilt will be much loved and often used. She's ready for shipping!
