Peacock Quilt-as-you-go quilt set is finally done!!!

Yay it’s finished!!!!! I finally finished my queen sized quilt-as-you-go quilt for my bed!! I love it, I even made some matching pillows. I still have to make one more pillow case, I ran out of fabric for it. But I just haven’t been able to get to the fabric store, and I’ve been dying to share this with you. It took a while but it was well worth it. I hope you can see the colors and details of the fabrics good in the photos. It has a lot of shimmery gold accents in it.

As you can see by my headline, I used the infamous quilt-as-you-go method. It was so simple to do, just was a lot a fabric 😉 ok so I hope I don’t sound conceited, but this is the best quilt I’ve ever made. Every line is straight and when it’s folded, the corners all match up perfectly…I’m so proud of it EEK!

Ok enough of me raving about it, here are the pics, hopefully it lives up to my gloating. There is one photo my quilt being held up, well it’s pretty heavy, so it doesn’t make the stripes look like they are perfectly parallel to one another. I can assure you they are though. I really tried my absolute best to make them perfect. Ugh, I’m really not a perfectionist at all. But when it comes to my work, aka anything crafty or dealing with sewing, I am lol. Oh well, the end result is stunning, hope you like it just as much as I do!

Thanks for reading

Quilt-as-you-go Queen Quilt for my bed…

Hello again, so I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I sure did, spent lots of much needed time with my family. And of corse paid my respects to what this day represents. I have a cousin in Afghanistan right now, so my heart goes out to him and his family. We all are praying he has a safe return home soon.

On another note, I have started making my queen sized quilt for my bed, like I’d mentioned in my last post. Yes, I am using the quilt-as-you-go method, and it’s awesome. I really can’t express to you how much I do love this. It’s so simple and makes it so much more fun when making a quilt.

I mentioned previously how I would be changing it a bit, compared to the last quilt I made, for my previous quilt-as-you-go quilt. In the previous one, it had random diagonal stripes of fabric that sat horizontally across the quilt. Well in this one, as you can see, I’m making even, 6″, parallel stripes, still going horizontally across my quilt. I really thing it gives the quilt a more finished and professional look. The other one is fun and edgy, but I dunno, it just didn’t sync well with me.

Well, I hope you enjoy the pics, even though they are absolutely horrible. The lighting in my house does absolutely no justice for it. The colors are much more royal then seen in the pics.

Thanks for reading
