DWR...a flimsy....Yay!!

Oh my what a lot of work, I never thought I would ever get there...
.....but here it is, a whole 56 rings in all..
The quilt measures 120" x 97"....just over 3 metres by 2.5 metres.
I'm so glad that's done, I'm not sure that I really want to do another  DWR just now, so I'll have a little think about the second wedding quilt...
 
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day....I was blessed to have all my family here yesterday.
It's so hard these days to get everyone together, so it was a very special day.....lots of hugs, chatter and laughter...and of course lots of food.
Can't believe I even forgot to get a favourite family traditional dish out that I had prepared ....there it was still in the fridge when everyone was ready to go home....so some went home with them...
 Good thing I have some left overs for dinner tonight as I've been sewing all day and too tired to cook.... 
 
Until next time...take care.....♥

  7. Congratulations, Julia, that is a big one to get finished! I can understand your hesitation over the second one!

    What is the quilting plan? Maybe a break while you quilt will re-energize you for DWR #2. :D

  10. WooHoo!! Gorgeous, Julia!!
    I can absolutely understand your hesitance to make another right away. : )
    Glad you had a good Mother's Day.
    Oh, I have pulled that "leave a special dish in the fridge" trick myself! *LOL*

  11. Will this lovely top be quilted by you? or will you send it to a long arm quilter? Even with a mid arm as we both have, it's a major undertaking. The thing that challenges me the most with a large quilt is the sandwiching and basting, preparing for the quilting.
    It's a true beauty, Julia! Good for you.

  12. Congratulations, what a lovely large quilt! I am sure the other grandchild wont mind having a different pattern...log cabin! Only joking! You deserve a rest and some easy piecing. : )

  13. Wow & WOW!! 56 rings, yes I know the feeling. I am just making the bias binding on my customers DWR, that is a big job too.
    Gosh good luck with the second one, will it be the same colours?

  18. It sounds like you had a lovely Mothers' Day, Julia - and we've all left something in the fridge some time or other! Your DWR is a triumph, well done - maybe I can come see it before it is given to the newly weds?! Dare I ask about the quilting of it??

  19. Sending a hearty "Congrats" for a finished DWR top from one who's DWR is still a WIP! But I see you have a finished one in your header so I'd have had no doubts you'd get this one to this point.

    I too would like to know what are your plans for quilting it?

  20. Oh my gosh Julia...that is absolutely wonderful - and I am still stuck where I was at the last posting! How many rows are there ...9 x 7? I don't think I would ever do another one. I really love your one!
