Izzy's Wedding Quilt Update - 98 Arches Finished and Moving on to Next Step!


I've finished all 98 arches I need for the double wedding ring quilt I'm making for my granddaughter, Isabelle.  I'm not in any hurry. She's only 8. After a car accident (no injuries but lots of car damage caused by some other driver running a red light) a few months ago she told me I was going to live long enough to go to her wedding. And she's mentioned that several times since.   So, if I can't be there physically then I will be there in spirit with a quilt as a gift for her.  

My next step will be to connect the arches with a center of this yellow floral fabric that I'm afraid to cut into since it cost so much. 

I also need to make some 4 patches for the ends of the arches. I may do that first.  

So, with this Friday finish I'll link up to Crazy Mom Quilts and also check out what everyone else has finished this week. 
And, hey, can I get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict?   I'll also see who else gets a Whoop Whoop.

That is lovely and will be a wonderful gift on her special day in years to come. I have a quilt my grandmother made me and gave as a wedding gift and it is cherished.

Cathy, that's going to be just gorgeous! And hopefully you WILL be there to give it to your granddaughter in person! But I had to laugh - I've had the same thought! Whoop whoop!

You're doing great! Very inspirational to me as I'm doing a similar quilt and only have 3 sets of arches done.:)
