What a marvelous feeling, the modern king sized courthouse steps quilt is finished. I am thrilled! I have a few projects I can work on now and I may stop dreaming about green fabric.
I quilted this big quilt in a big design, bold like the quilt. I did geometric shapes that interconnected over all 30 blocks. It went fairly fast because my Gladys the Gammill Longarm quilting machine was a sweet gal the whole time. Way to go Gladys!
As I was working on the blocks and the top, I sewed the extra strips or parts of strips together. I used quite a bit to make the back but I knew I had enough for the binding.
I had originally set aside one 14 yard chunk of strips sewn together and never touched it.
I had added two lengths onto that so I wasn't worried. I had also been ironing all the pieces as I went along. All I really had to do was roll it up.
My husband and son in law had to hang the quilt off the balcony. I stood in the front lawn and took the picture looking up.
Then they flipped it to the back side. I was curious to see it, you never really know until it's all quilted. I loved it even though no one will ever see it once it's on the bed.
You might be wondering why I don't have any pictures of it on the bed. I want to bring it to guild for show and tell. And I want to make new throw pillows to go with this new quilt.
I've waited this long, I can wait a few more days, yes?
