    This quilt is the reason I had to take a break from the site for a little while. The top had been done for quite awhile and I kept telling my son I'd get to it, but the task seemed so daunting that I kept putting it off. I finally PROMISED him that I would start on it right after Christmas, and you know you can't break a promise to one of your kids :P

    He's 6'1" and you can't see him in the pic, so you can tell how huge it is. I think it finished at 94"x94". He wanted me to make him a quilt using all civil war repros, but I cheated and used a Moda for the background, so wound up naming this quilt "Civil Disobedience" LOL

    I did the quilting. That's the part that took me so long that I had to take a break from here to get it all done. I'm the slowest quilter on the planet. LOL

    Lin that is outstanding, I bet your son appreciates just how much love you hae poured into this quilt, I admire your determination and hopefully one day I might just manage one myself as I love quilting, but its gonna take a long time before I get to your standard - if EVER!! :?

    Thank you all SO much. Hearing kind remarks makes it all the effort worthwhile. :)

    Kathy, I have Juki TL-98 Q machine. It's been such a wonderful machine. It has an 8"x5 3/4" throat area, so a lot will fit into that space. I did this one on the diagonal and managed to get a little over half in there with no trouble.
