Finally!

I finished the album quilt top yesterday!

I am SO glad to be done with this top. It is a big one! Right now, it measure about 96″ x 106.” I have batting ordered. I hope it gets here soon! I am not sure how I will quilt this. I originally thought I would custom quilt it, but now I am leaning toward using this panto from Urban Elementz.

I also had a big box of goodness delivered to my doorstep yesterday in the form of 10 kits for Quilts Beyond Borders. I got the first top loaded, quilted, and bound last night. You can learn more about Quilts Beyond Borders here.

I used another Urban Elementz panto called Yodel. The next one is loaded and ready for quilting this morning before work.

  1. Katy, your album quilt top is gorgeous – such rich, saturated colors. Yay for a finish! I’ll be watching to see the quilting. Totally finished is always the best part. 😉

  2. LOVE your album quilt, Katy! I know it feels great to finish up a top that big. I think that quilting design will be lovely!

    I too like the album quilt. It reminds me of “granny squares” which I love.
