    What is the biggest quilting project you've done?

    Big in the literal sense? Insanely expensive? Very complicated? Or perhaps a combination of all three? Interpret the question however you like.

    I have just been asked by a friend to make a king size quilt for her bed!! This may be a premature answer to your question :-D :-D It will be the biggest quilting project I will have done.

    The biggest I've made so far is 96 x 114. It was a wedding gift for my nephew and it cost quite a bit to make also. Plus the fact it was time consuming: one block took 4 hours to make and there were 42 blocks.

    The biggest quilt I have done so far is a trip around the world quilt. It is about 72 inches square. It was a little difficult to quilt under my machine but, I got it done.

    My next challenging quilt will be one that I ordered from connecting threads. It is called "Yuletide Snowflake". It is 82 inches square. Requires applique, still a pretty new thing for me-I don't know how to do it correctly yet-without using steam a seam, and it requires cutting the pieces on a 45 degree angle (i'm nervous about that part-don't want to mess up. But, I love the pattern. I will start it sometime after Christmas.

    My largest project so far was a 124" x 136" quilt for my grand-niece' wedding present. At the quilt shop I am now know as "Omar the Tent Maker."

    The biggest in expence was the all silk quilt I made. I love it though, so it was worth it to me.

    56 blocks, 14" each, 98"X112". I don't know the total cost, nor do I really want to know.

    One of these days it will be a "lap quilt" for my husband!

    I can't even imagine making one this big...

    My biggest project now is a queen size with batiks. Not because of the size, but because I was stupid enough to listen to other people saying, "Wouldn't this fabric be pretty?" NOT!!! They are too dark for my taste and not enough contrast for my taste. It is definitely one that I won't keep, and it is taking me forever because I don't want to do it.

    These are the kinds of quilts I love, the bigger the better, and YES I will crawl up in one this size ALONE and be the happiest girl in the world!
