I don't get how you machine quilted such a giant quilt tho.

If you look at the picture on the first page, you can get a better idea.  I rolled up one side and then draped the other side over the table and a chair (that you can't see.)  I held lots of it on my lap and slowly worked my way through.  It wasn't the easiest thing to do, but it's do-able!

I am thinking I may machine a king sized quilt, not sure if it's possible Tongue

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

it is.  I did it with an Irish Chain that's on my bed.  Took a while, but it's workable!

It is possible especially if you roll the side you aren't quilting up tight - that way it will fit through the machine.  All the best with it!

This is lovely.
I really really commend you on such a good use of colour. Smiley I feel that violet/yellow is the hardest of the complementary schemes to pull off.

Thanks!  You wouldn't believe the strange looks I received from people when I told them I was working on a purple and yellow quilt but, once they saw the original or pictures, they liked it.
