Kick ass! I can't imagine sewing all those little squares together, I think I would end up losing my mind. Fantastic job!

Thanks! Looks like I caught the bug again too, I am going to start basting another project tonight (just a small twin/throw size this time though).

Thank you!

It's pieced diagonally, so the "strips" on one side of the stalks are squares and the other side was whole strips, you can kind of see it in this photo. The dark brown and light brown on the far side are in strips, while the yellow, orange-ish, and light-greenish-blue are in squares.

King-size Sprout Quilt in Bella Solids

Sorry the photos aren't better, it's taken me about a week to get ones even this good as, with the days being so short, it's still pretty dark when I leave for work and by the time I get home.

This is the first quilt I have completed in about a decade, I made a few baby quilts as a teenager and finished (barely) a double quilt when I was about twenty. Certainly never anything this ambitious.

It's not perfect, the backing is a bit crumpled in places. I didn't think about the fact that I didn't have a space large enough in our house to lay out a king-size quilt for basting until I was already to that point. Smiley And the binding is absolutely a mess, but by that time I was just so ready to have it complete that the thought doing it by hand made me want to gouge my own eyes out with a spoon, so I did it on the machine (which I'm not exactly proficient on) with some* success. But since, for the past week, it has admirably filled the role of the 10-year-old store-bought quilt we were using, that is barely fit for a dropcloth anymore, I've decided not to hold that against it.

From start to finish, piecing and binding on the machine and quilting by hand, it took me about 3 1/2 month to complete, working mostly evenings and weekends with an extra couple of days of vacation thrown in.

Thanks for viewing!

*"some" defined as: it's attached but looks like I did it blindfolded while riding a pogo stick.
