This is the biggest quilt I have ever (and for the record will ever) make! It is a very late 30th birthday present for my very patient sister.
I started it back here in July 2012 with this lovely stack of fabrics.
And then I stalled. In my defence I had got pregnant and then I had a baby and then I went back to work and then I ran out of excuses.
Rachel has a king size bed so this was going to need to be a big quilt so I decided to try Quilt As You Go. And my verdict? Well the positive is that it gave a beautiful finish to each block and made it look heavily quilted without the need to push an enormous quilt through the machine. But the downside is it is hugely repetitive and just a little bit boring! Luckily I loved these fabrics so they maintained my interest which is a good thing seeing as how long I spent working on this!
Luckily she loves it!
