Here is a quilt of my own design that was very quickly pieced, I really like the colors. It turned out to be much bigger then expected 94x76, a bit of overcompensation on my part. I used the entire width of all fabrics except for the girl panels which I had to sash individually. The back is made out of flannel I wanted it to be really warm for my little niece Sara. But, my sister sent it back because she didn't want to use it on my nieces bed but wanted to hang it up, so now I have to sew in a rod pocket and the only thing this quilt will make warm is the wall. Kind of sad, does anyone else find that the quilts they make wind up on walls instead of beds?

i think you should send it back to her and say that quilts are for snuggling and getting comfy. tell her you'll make a little wallhanging for the wall.

its beautiful btw. and should be enjoyed

My quilts are mostly made to be walhangingsl-and small. Wall quilts are still useful though-they can keep drafts out.
I have to commend you on tackling such a big project! And it looks machine quilted (!)  I'll probably never be able to make one that size, let alone get it through a machine without blood being spilled-not necessarily mine. Roll Eyes

some quilts do look nice on a wall...but it would be a shame not to be able to see the back of this one!!
