    This is a 110 x 110 king size I made for my son and dil. It has 12 different fabrics and I made shams to match. she saw one in a specialty store and took a picture with her camera. Wanted to know if I thought it would be to hard. (I'll never tell her how easy it was.I have it laid out on my queen size bed.

    That's a beautiful quilt Jane. Love the way you've used the colours, makes it look interwoven.

    It may have been "easy", but it's still a lot of work to make a king-size quilt! It's beautiful!

    I bought the fabric at walmart. Seven of the colors all had the same muted pattern of flowers the rest was from stash, the dark maroon I used right side up and then turned it over and used the back side because it had a muted white thread pattern on the back.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. Just stripped the colors in groups of 6 warm and 6 cool colors, measured the width and then cut the strips into squares. hardest part was getting them all turned the right way. Finally got one right and then taped it to the wall so I could be sure all blocks would be the same, then chain pieced until it was done.

    Thanks again for the compliments.

    It is a very striking quilt. Not colours that I would have considered putting together, thanks for sharing it, it helps to broaden my vision of what actually can work together in a quilt.

    Gorgeous and an inspiration too. I would never have thought to turn fabric over to get a muted shade of the front. Even I can coordinate that way. Thanks for sharing.

    Just had to add my compliments to all the others. It is a beautiful quilt, I saw the fabric in our WalMart here and my creative juices started flowing, too. It is very interesting that someone else also saw the possibilities of their fabric! Your kids are quite lucky and I know they will enjoy the quilt :lol:

    Looks great. Just being a beginner, that's a pattern that shouldn't challenge me---but me being me, it will. :P

    Thank you all for the compliments. It was actually one of the easiest quilts I have done. I quilted it in the ditch so it didn't take an eternity. My son was so anxious for me to get it done he could hardly stand it. They love it and it looks beautiful on their king size bed.

    I have used some of the fabrics in it in another quilt. A Jungle quilt and my grandaughter picked out the two greens and the tan and gold to go around the center block with the jungle background and an animal in it. It also turned out really pretty. My dil is going to use in as a wall quilt in her bedroom which has really high ceilings.

    Keep on quilting girls and Tim

    I can see that your local Wal Mart has some very nice looking fabrics...how nice. this quilt looks like ribbons woven together, I really like the affect. The colors are great as well. Nice work Jane.

    Lovely quilt - your DIL and DS will love it! It does look braided, as ShellyQ stated, that's a nice effect.
