There's no place big enough to spread out a quilt in this house that has good light. I tried doing this out on the porch, but the light is not very good to be getting a good quilt picture.
A close up along the side... nice flowing quilt pattern that mom picked out.
Here are a couple of the blocks- I like the way the pattern of both the quilt and the stitching look like ocean waves. My friends have (until recently) always lived near the sea, so this is really appropriate for them.
I made this quilt a bit bigger as my friends have animals that hog the covers, too. I always hate getting that draft up my backside. This quilt ended up being 112". The back is pretty basic and boring, but found a place online that sells 118" backs which can be found here Backside Fabrics. (I've been having them ship directly to mom!) If you decide to try them, note that one of the selvedges is 1 1/2 wide so you are not quite getting the whole width of the fabric.
This is my label. I like these fancy labels, but they take about half a day or more to make. The green frame of the label is stitched on two fabrics (white on bottom) and the top layer of green striped batik cut out when done. Then the rest of the lettering is embroidered. I guess if you spend all those hours making a quilt, you should put a good label on it and not resent the time it takes to make that label.
Might still have to work on that a bit.... I'd rather be quilting than making a label.
