    Default The Big One - Finally Done

    This is by far the biggest quilt I've ever made. There are 2401 3" squares. Pattern called for 2 7/8" squares, thought I'll make them 3". Easier, I can be more exact. What's 1/8" anyway? Until you take that times 49. Set up an extra table in my studio for layout. I wound up having to make wider leaders for my quilt machine just to get it quilted. This was quite a stash buster. I got a lot of "what are you crazy?" but I had so much fun with this one. Quilted in a really vibrant gold. At least with this one my hubby can roll over a few more times before I run out of covers! (By the way, meet Cheyenne!)

    That is so gorgeous!! Love the way you quilted it too. I want your dog. He is so perfectly marked that he doesn't look real and he matches the quilt!

    Gorgeous I love how this turned out. Did you use a pattern or make up your own. And Cheyenne is also gorgeous I love heavily shaded sables!
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

    That is beautiful, a true work of art and labor of love. Congratulations on finishing the beast! Now go make a mug rug or something tiny.
