    Thanks for the feedback! Today is border day. She wanted a lace border sitting ontop a dark navy border, so the trick is to figure that out. I have some lace cloth material that I got, but the lace pattern is only heavy on the bottom so I've had to get creative on how to assemble it into something attractive. Then I have to attach the blue borders underneath it. I'll post more pictures when I have that figured out, but let's just say my eyes are going buggy! lol

    she is quite a picky client so I really hope she likes it. Otherwise it might stay at my house and warm my bed!

    So here it is all done. The borders are on. It looks kind of weird the lace part, but I don't care. As long as she doesn't complain!

    that's one HUGE quilt. Looks gorgeous. They should really enjoy it. I am just glad that I do not have to fold it each time.

    I'm curious -- what are you going to charge for this quilt? Did she pay for the materials? How much does a quilt that large cost to make (not counting the hours of work you've put into it)? I'm sure that folks on this board who are contemplating making a quilt this big would be interested in knowing. E.g., how many yards of fabric are in this quilt? " inquiring minds what to know" lol
