This is a quilt I made for a friend of mine. I promised her it for her birthday 2 1/2 years and just gave it to her on her half birthday this past Tuesday.
It's has 33 shows on it for a total of 82 blocks (2 became pillows)
10ft long and 7 1/2ft wide
Barque satin on the borders
French Seamed on the bottom with ribbon stitched in so you can tie it (it's more of cover than a quilt)
The inside is two pieces of muslin with a piece of batting inside. I stitched it to the inside seams just a few here and there to hold it. It took me more than two years just to compile the photos. I've been sewing it for the past six weeks pretty solid. She loved it!
