I just finished this king size quilt.  It is completely hand stitched and hand quilted.  I even sewed the binding on by hand.
It was a simple pattern I made up using mostly charms packs and a jelly roll.  It took me nearly a year because I would get tired of it and put it up for a little while.  It makes me happy!

Your quilt is beautiful!  More so because it's all done by hand ... I'm working on my first king size right now and can't imagine doing it by hand.

The colors look awesome together!  I have a special place in my heart for quilts with white sashing.  I can't even imagine handstitching a quilt that big, but you did a beautiful job!
