    These are pictures of my first queen size quilt. All I have done before were throws, a twin size and wall hangings. Oh yes, and I gave them all away. When I made this one MH asked who it was for and he could not believe I was keeping this one. It is a little larger than a queen so I can use it as a spread on our bed.

    Thanks everyone. I pieced it on the machine and had it hand quilted by a group of ladies at one of the churches in Kosciusko. I have not done any hand quilting but want to learn.

    BDor, I love that Warm Wishes pattern, I've used it twice and it's perfect for showing off some fussy cut fabrics, good job.

    I too am a fan of WW. How different your quilt looks in the fabrics you used. Queen sized makes you know you have made a quilt. :lol: Just pressing all the seams can be a challenge.

    Bdor, what a lovely quilt. I really like the way your alternative block frames your feature fabric. I have been collecting squares of novelty prints and this would make a choice eyespy quilt. Love it :thumbup:
