    Very pretty quilt and have fun quilting it. Look on you tube to watch some quilting video''s, pool the quilt up so it's not heavy and dragging when your quilting it.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I have quilted my own but I wouldn't try a king. When I do a baby quilt, I tape the backing right side down to my floor. When all the wrinkles are taught I add the batting and quilt top and pin, pin, pin. Then you have to roll it as you have to start in the middle. Good luck.

    Great quilt! You did a wonderful job on it and I'm sure you will treasure it forever.

    Wow. It will be beautiful however you choose to quilt it, but if you have the patience, hand quilting it would be lovely.

    Nice quilt? Machine quilting a good-size quilt on your machine is like eating an elephant...one section at a time. You cando it! Show pics please!
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!
