Got the HUGE quilt top all finished!

It’s big.  It’s reeeeally big.  Right now it’s 106″ x 95″.  My goal is for 104″ x 93″ when it’s all washed so I went just a bit bigger… and it’s BIG! But I love it.  I really can’t wait to see this one all finished.

Finished HUGE quilt top

I’m a bit scared about tackling the quilting on my little sewing machine, but I’m just gonna go for it!!  First I need to make the back though.

Here’s a couple of my favorite blocks in it:

Favorite Block 1

Favorite Block 2

    I LOVE IT! I love the colors! Do you have a hard time trying to decide where to put your favorite blocks? I always sit there trying to decide forever where to put them so I will see them the most! Silly. I quilted a king on my machine a few months ago for my Mom, it was a beast to quilt. I quilted it on her huge kitchen table and that made ALL the difference having the extra space and leverage, and I put a cardboard table beside me to hold the bulk of the quilt up, it made a huge difference because that is the hardest part! Good luck I can’t wait to see this one quilted!

    i love the colors in this one. is it going to be for your bed??? good luck stippling a king quilt. (do you like how i just assume that you are going to stipple it?) i haven’t even attempted that on a king yet, but it’s coming up on my list of things to do. all too soon. :)

    Oh man – it looks amazing. Good luck on the quilting. I just finished one for my son – it’s 70″ x 80″ and it was a beast to quilt!

    Very pretty! I like the block with the deer in it too. They look they are from a paint by number picture.

    Beautiful. I’ve seen that deer fabric and wondered what you could do with it–it’s great!

    I’m interested to follow your progress quilting it!

  20. Nikki February 2, 2009 at 8:10 am #

    Awesome. I can’t wait to see how quilting it goes and to hear some tips from you so I can try it myself!

  21. Ashley February 2, 2009 at 8:13 am #

    Wow, so beautiful, and so large! I’m so impressed to hear that you’re going to do the quilting, and I look forward to seeing it finished! And then maybe I”ll bug you for some tips so I can get around to quilting my queen sized one! I hope this one will end up on your bed!

  22. Jackie February 2, 2009 at 1:08 pm #

    Love the quilt!

  23. Elizabeth February 2, 2009 at 1:17 pm #

    It’s beautiful! Good luck with your quilting!

    I love the hits of blue! And what is that orange fabric in the outer square on the second block?

    If you are doing mostly straight-line quilting, or even slightly wonky, it won’t be too hard to quilt. Even if you stipple just break it into sections, have it supported well, take breaks, and roll/reroll often.

  25. anina February 23, 2009 at 11:54 am #

    Wow! Stunning! Are you going to quilt that one yourself or send it out?

  26. anina February 23, 2009 at 11:55 am #

    Uh, OK, ignore the previous comment. I’m clearly not all here today!
    Good luck with the quilting.
