Update:Quilt top in 3 hours-FINISHED!

A while back I posted a quilt top that I made in 3 hours while Zane napped, well I finished it! I used a plain sheet for the backing that I got off of freecycle and cotton batting. Logan loves it and sleeps under it every night. I don't think I will be tackling a big one like this for a while. This one is a twin size and was more than I could handle at times, free motion quilting it. I'm going to stick with the lap throws for awhile until I have this quilting thing a bit more mastered.

I can see why Logan's love it. It has all the things he loves. I enlarge the picture, and there is Buzz light year, butterflies, space ships and the color he loves.
Great job Gretchen.

You put me to shame.

About the online offers: I think my out-of-pocket costs for my first were less than $50, even with return shipping costs. Maybe that helps? Why don't we start e-mailng: info@QStreet.org . Maybe we can meet at Shoppers Food Warehouse sometime this week!

Gretchen,
That is such a wonderful quilt. It looks really cozy and warm (and we need that in these icebox houses). I have a pattern for a really pretty and girly lapquilt that I am going to attempt as my first before I tackle the bed quilt because it is daunting to think about quilting something that is really big like a queen-sized quilt.

I'm impressed. Learning to quilt frightens me. Is there alot of cutting and pinning or mostly sewing?
