    Monster quilt (size wise)

    This is the very first quilt I have ever attempted to make..I started on her about a year ago for my queen size bed and when finished she will cover a king with no problem ..I had no idea what I was doing, only knew I wanted to quilt...Thru the year, I have learned many many things and a lot of thanks goes out to this board and to the wonderful people on it..She is wonky and I still need to finish one more row, than the border and binding..But, she is well loved already by us

    Gosh, that's great!

    I haven't had the "nerve" to start a quilt that big and to make it your first one!

    WOW! You did a very nice job. I probably would have never tackled a king size for my first quilt.

    Can't wait to see it finished. It's time to start another one, or have you started one already.
