Stained Glass Quilt Center is Finished

I’ve finished the center of the quilt!

The picture with the ironing board is to help give you an idea of just how large it is.

I need to purchase border fabric as well as more black fabric. I’ll do three more borders instead of one like the pattern suggests. Why? The six inch border it calls for doesn’t look enough, it makes it all so narrow looking. The first border I plan on doing will be three inches, then a one inch strip of black, and the final border will be four to six inches. It’ll increase the size of the quilt and give it a bit more oomph. The binding will be black as well. After I finish the top I’ll then purchase backing because I have no idea how much I’ll need.

After I get the backing I’ll then create the sandwich (top, batting, back) and hand-quilt the entire thing. That will take at least two weeks. It looks like the finished price will be around $700-$800. I’m hoping it sells because it’s beautiful, I’ve invested a lot of money in it, and it’s hundreds of hours of work.

The final size will likely be large enough for a full size bed (larger than a twin size).

Taking photographs when it’s finished will be a challenge.

Great News!

I have full motion in my wrist.  I can put weight on it for the first time in YEARS.  It’s not stiff or sore or even remotely tender.  Honestly, I didn’t believe my recovery would be this successful; not after seeing how much scar tissue they removed nor the extent of the damage my wrist had suffered.

In a few days or so I’ll return to finishing Space Lanterns, then work on finishing a few other projects I had lined up.  I really wanna do some paper-piecing, and purchased some newsprint paper specifically for that.  I also want to paint and draw and even color line art.  Oh, and I can make jewelry again.

This is FANTASTIC!

Now I’m gonna finish my sandwich and play Witcher 3.  The gaming has helped a lot with getting flexibility back.
