    How on earth do you quilt something that big? I done just a regular king size for a customer and it almost filled my long-arm quilt rollers. I swore I wouldn't make another king size or quilt a king size again so what happens, my son is going to get married and I want (or wanted) to make them a quilt buy it seems they have a KING SIZE bed. Now I'm not so sure.lol

    I'm actually not quilting it. It's only two layers, the top and the backing. She lives in AZ and it's too hot for an actual quilt, so its more like a bedspread. So I'm putting the backing on it and calling it good. Thanks for all the feedback. AFter staring at it for so long it's startig to be ugly to me, maybe in a few months it'll be beautiful again lol

    No, it's beautiful now, and it never could be ugly.

    Don't the backing and the top need to be either tied or sewn together so they don't shift?

    So it's all done, with backing and everything. I sent a picture to my client and she likes it! (she darn well better! I was going to keep it if she didn't!) So here is the finsihed pictures.

    It looks great on the bed too. I think it is remarkable that it looks so nice and flat, and without quilting. You must have done a great job pressing!

    Well it helps that there is no batting. It's just the quilt top and backing fabric. And then I double stitched on the edges to get it to lay flat.
