Royal Gardens – Finished!

Royal Gardens - Done!

The first quilt I got done on the longarm Saturday was Royal Gardens, the Saturday Sampler from Tiny Stitches. It’s a bit of an odd size – 87×108″, and naturally was too big to hang on my clothes line.  I had to fling it over the railing on my back deck and let it hang down to photograph.

I had most of the center done when I picked up the final December block, and just needed to wait on the border kit to finish the top up.  Because the prints are so busy, it really only needed a simple all-over quilting design.

I’m still contemplating what to do with it – keep it for our house, or give it away to a person I have in mind that could use a quilting hug.  There’s a couple goofs where the backing puckered that make me think it’s not “good enough” to give away, so that’s what’s keeping me from making a firm decision right now (plus I could make this person another quilt anyway!)

  1. Holy cow, woman!!! Do you sleep?

    Royal Gardens and Celtic Solstice are both beautiful! The colors you chose for CS are terrific. I saved the instructions for that but didn’t start it, but your finish is making me think of putting this higher on my list of things to do.

  2. That is gorgeous! I love the border and sashing prints, do you know what line they’re from? I would be proud to have that quilt on my bed, puckers in the backing or not.
