Purge Finish

It may not have been what I was striving for but I did finish one of the three quilts
I had intended for Stitched In Color's PURGE.

This is the largest quilt I have ever completed and it made a nice dent in my scraps.
It measures 70" x 80", a monster for my books!
I wanted a size that kept my foster son covered even when he's been rolling all over the place in his sleep!  This bad boy will do just that.

I thought quilting this big guy was going to be a problem but nothing could be further from the truth!
It all came together nicely.

The back is a collective of large scraps and a small quilt top that I just couldn't get excited about no matter how hard I tried. So in the spirit of being frugal (not cheap), I added the not so loved quilt.

One down and 2 more, this size, to go!  
But first I'm in the middle of constructing a special something for a new arrival tomorrow ;)
Check back then.


  1. Looks fabulous! I did the purge along too and it sure felt great to use up some of the fabrics that have been sitting on the shelf for a long time.

  2. I know he's going to love this...and you're going to love that it's done. :) blessings, marlene

  3. I'm sure he loves that quilt. Oh my, it is so huge - kudos to you.
