Giant Amy Butler Heart Quilt Finished!

Two finishes in one week is pretty darn amazing here in the land of 'I don't own a machine'!
I'm pretty proud that I got Finn's quilt and this one out the door in the same week. My sister asked me to make this one as a sister to this quilt.

Now I have to start on quilts for twin boys for their birthday coming up, and also one for MY bed! Imagine that...keeping a quilt I make. Huh. Never occurred to me.

Here's my 24 year old Heather and my six year old Wolf helping me pin the quilt. He's sure helping a lot, hey?

This thing is a monster! When you're hand piecing, it goes on forever.

Here is a closeup, but it's upside down. I tried to turn it around but it looked funny. The blocks are hearts.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

It's gorgeous! What's the finished size? I love the fabrics and the subtle effect of the hearts. So now you're off to hand-quilt this beast?

I can't believe you made something that big without a machine. I would have given up before finishing. The arthritis doesn't help anything in that department. I can't even sit at the machine as long as I want to anymore. No more all day for me!
Love your work!
