I blogged about it here. Did I really think I could get it done by Labor Day? Perhaps Labor Day plus 365. I solemnly swear never to attempt a king sized quilt ever, ever again. The piecing was a joy. The basting, not so much. The quilting ~ are you kidding me? Nightmare. I did it on my little 'ole Elna. 6" grid. Don't look to closely. Puckers Galore (was she a Bond girl?) The back looks like an 80 year old who thought sun tan lotion and baby oil were synonymous (meaning, lots and lots of wrinkles.) No matter, it will be well used. Here she is: (I called it a guy earlier. She's definitely a girl. I may even name her. Josephine pops into my head at the moment.)
There has to be close to 75 or 80 different vintage sheets used. The back is one full size, with an 8 inch border all around. This is the summer quilt I was after. Light and airy, with an ever so soft, well loved backing. I like how she came out. I love that she's done. I'm ecstatic that I can now move on to other far less consuming projects!
