    Spectacular quilt in my favorite colour and spectacular staging as well.

          I love it! And I like that idea of big stitch zig zag! Question- when you say big stitch did you hand quilt? Or use heavier thread?

            Yes, the big stitch was hand quilted with perle cotton size 8 thread. Here is the video link that I used to learn how to big stitch quilt. It was very helpful, especially since I had not hand quilted before learning big stitch technique.

              This is a beautiful quilt. I love the piano fabric and the crossword fabric because those pop out. The blues and tans look wonderful together. I also love there is an entire other side so he can flip it over. Very nice and great pictures.
