Ben and Heather's Quilt

Here is Ben posing with the quilt I made for him and Heather for their wedding June 2nd, 2007. His arms weren't long enough to hold the complete quilt out! This quilt is huge..90" x 113". It is from a pattern in McCall's Quick Quilting July 2001, called "Starlight" by Janet Jones Worley. We added more borders to make it queen sized. It is completely pieced and quilted on my trusty Singer 15-88 treadle.

Free motion leaf quilting in the green and blue borders:

The quilting on the back. I quilted it with blue thread on the back so there wouldn't be a chance of yellow popping up through that dark navy blue. The loop quilting on the narrow yellow border was done with yellow in the bobbin.

Hey Jen:

Thanks for your comments on the quilt :-). Ben and Heather are using it on their's a queen sized quilt! It was quite a chore to quilt it as it was soooo big. It was fun working on it, but I'm glad it's finished!
