    105 x 121 Over sized king for my DD 15" pillow top mattress. Now this baby has 8 "Y" seams per block, 30 blocks, comes to 240 "Y" seams.

    Some of you might remember (about a month ago) Joeyoz's Dove in the Window quilt. Believe it or not, this is the same quilt. But mine is a more MODERN version of Dove in the Windows. Or as Joey would say in class that my doves flew to the attic to do drugs. lol :lol:

    on my queen bed it looks huge!

    That is beautiful, but it sure is big. How do you even lift it. I'm just kidding. I bet she is going to love it.

    Thank you all

    Yes it was a work out with that huge of a quilt top. BUT my wonderful DH, a couple of years ago for my B-day, bought me a Koala cabinet, with the fold up quilters back. That saved me!! I even told him ty a couple of times when I was wrestling the top around. I don't know how some of you do large quilts, on small tables.

    That is beautiful. Wonderful color selection. And I like the idea of drugged-up doves.
