I like to experiment when I quilt, so I make mostly wall hangings and table toppers.  I finally broke down and made a queen size quilt.  These suckers take a lot longer to make!!!  I used mostly 1930's reproduction prints, 'tho I snuck in a modern day dragon in one of the squares.



Hope you like.

Congratulations! You should be very proud. I'm about to start my own queen size quilt (first as well). It's good to see someone else succeed. Great job again!

Wow, it is gorgeous.
How big are the squares and how many did you need?

I have started cutting up 6 inch squares just in case I ever get around to starting something like this. At least all my squares will be ready to go!

Well done.

Well done.
I started with 6" squares I had been swapping with other people, and added to them big time.  I set the squaares on point because I like the dynamic movement you get from diagonals. I do not know how many there are other than a lot.  When I first pieced the quilt, I hadn't made it wide enough, so I had to cut it apart and add a couple of rows.  I did a mock up with graph paper, scissors and glue so I'd get it right the second time.
