That's so cool!  It's gorgeous.  I bet it's super comfy.  I'd love to snuggle with something like that.  It'd be perfect for keeping warm in my apartment (the thermostat is out of my control, and set way lower than I would like!). I can't imagine all the work, though.  I think it looks awesome with the bold borders.  I love the feeling of finishing a project, especially when you get to enjoy the finished product!

I love this project! It's so pretty and fun! How was it to quilt over an old comforter? I have a hand me down king comforter that is plenty warm but also plenty ugly and I want to do something like this. Did you do the sandwich and binding or "birth" it? I just can't bear to part with something so functional but on the other hand is so not me.

I would LOVE a pattern for this if you don't mind! and more up  close and personal pictures of it!
There really is no pattern for it, the center squares are just different variations of a 4 patch made with half-square triangles, then I just started whacking on borders--a piano key, plain ones, sawtooth ones.

I didn't find it too difficult--but I did tie it, rather than quilt it, because of the bulk of the old comforter. Invest in some curved upholstery needles, they made the job much easier. It is sandwiched, but self-bound (the back lining I left extra, then just folded it forward to the front)

Wow! That is sooo intricate! How on earth people find the patience to work so small is beyond me (instant gratification, that's me!).

I hope you're really happy, that is one beautiful, unique, cosy quilt you've created.
