It’s finished, y’all! My first “big” quilt. I’m so glad I put on my big girl quilting panties and just did it. This one will probably be the hardest to give away to date, only because I can actually cuddle underneath it unlike all of my baby quilts! So, without further ado – here is my St. Louis 16 Patch: Chicopee Style!
Here’s one where you can see the binding and the quilting:
I am pretty much obsessed with this scrappy back:
Here’s the binding up close:
Words I never thought I’d say: I’m better at hand binding. While machine binding went much faster, I did make some mistakes. I should have read Kelly’s binding tutorial before I started, not 4 hours after I finished. You live and learn, folks. I’m sure this gets easier with practice too and I definitely want to practice in an effort to save time!
Final Quilt Stats:
- Fabric: Chicopee and Shelburne Falls
- 56 inches x 70 inches
- Quilted by ME on my Bernina 215
- Pattern: St. Louis 16 Patch
So many exciting things to come after this beauty helped me get over my fear of “large quilts”.
Happy quilting, y’all!
