    I have made four King-Size and one crib-size on one of my regular Brother machines..............works great, just keep the bulk of the project to the left as you work.
    One has a Blue Ribbon from the County Fair.......My kids entered it without me knowing.
    I bought the Fun & Done templet and discovered that I could do the concept on a much larger basis. I designed all of the on graph paper and went "to town".

    My first quilt was done in horizontal strips and then joined. The front was joined by machine and the batting and backing by hand on my kitchen counter. It is 80" x 100."

    I don't think I'll ever do that again.

    I've used the Fun & Done method for a king size quilt. It certainly makes it easy to quilt and it's quite fast, too.

    i just recently bought the fun & done! it has been nightmares & wasted fabric for me! What am i doing wrong?? i was making one with scrappy strings, but i thought it might be the backing fabric because it was slick. so i tried better fabric, it was better, i made 2 blocks & measured it, & the sizes are still off. any help would be appreciated i have been sewing for yrs so i know alot. judy

    I do the block by block method and I love it. I had quilt the blocks then sash them together. Of course I haven't tried anything really complicated yet. I did a queen size for my bed.

    I've done a scrappy one from a vintage fabric sample book. It just kept getting bigger and bigger until it was king sized. I had it on my porch for cool evenings, but the dogs have taken it over.

    I would love to hear details of how you do this, as the last queen size I quilted on my sewing machine I almost gave up. Will never quilt that large of a quilt on the machine again, unless maybe I could do it piece by piece like you did.

    I made a queen sized one for my hubby. He complained that I always made quilts for others and not him so I made HIM one :lol:

    You can even add borders using the same technique without a problem.

    It depends on the method. There are several. I made a queen sized Quilt of Valor QAYG. I think it turned out beautifully.

    Go to: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-52698-1.htm
    for QAYG that Deb Uses - it is a really great way to do it, and involves no hand stitching!

    https://www.baysidequilting.com/stor...idCategory=284 I just cut my strips for the top and started in the middle of the block. It was really easy quick and no hand sewing.

    Here is my posting of my progress.

    I don't understand how to put sections together. I tried online tutes and just could not get it. So after I struggled trying to figure it out I got out Jack(the ripper) and took it all apart. I put the blocks together, used another piece of batting and backing. I now have lots of cut batting pieces that I will be joining together for some smaller projects. A lot of scrap pieces become hot pads. Great, inexpensive gifts when you can afford a lot of $ and still want to share with others
