Here’s my most recent quilt top for the piecing book, before I cut it free from the machine…
The quilt is 90″ x 90″ and covered my design wall from floor to ceiling. I was happy to be moving on, until I realized that the bed this will someday cover has such a deep mattress and pad that 90″-square is just not big enough. Sigh.
I made a border round of blocks, following the same design but with just one light and one darker, blue fabric. The quilt is now 118″ x 118″!!! It no longer fits on my design wall. I haven’t made a quilt this big in many, many years. If ever.
I plan to quilt it myself. I’m thankful that I have the Sweet Sixteen and my clamp system.
