Yes, I’ve done quite a few bed quilts. My very first was in 1975, a log cabin. I dutifully put red squares in the center of each block. This was before rotary cutters you know: using scissors, I cut each strip into the length and width required by the block– never thinking I could just cut long strips and then cut them to fit as I sewed them in place. It was very colorful, mostly calicos. And king -sized! I could not quilt such a large one (nor did I know how or want to) so I sent it to a church group that did quilting bees for a fee that went to the church. I don’t have a photo any more. 😦
Took some quilting classes, learned some stuff. I began doing hand quilting. Did a few small pieces, pillows, and lap quilts. A nice person who believed in my work commissioned me to do a double wedding ring for her new husband and her. 1983. I used polished cotton for the background, and hand-quilted it.
Now I’ve done about 20 bed-sized quilts, and here are some.
