    Okay...more photos with my new camera! :)

    This queen-sized whole cloth quilt is what I am currently working on with my hand-quilting. The backing is black and white floral...almost a toile.

    Once washed, the blue lines will disappear and all you will see are the stitching lines.

    Very nice. I made the same one. Thought the fabric was very hard to quilt. Took me 6 yrs, on and off. Gorgeous
    finished product.

    My kind of quilting. I have a queen size bed quilt I finished years ago and another kit somewhere in my stash. I find that kind of quilting so relaxing. You are doing a beautiful job.

    My, my, my. That will be gorgeous. I could start now, and work on it 12 hours a day for the rest of my life and I still wouldn't get it finished. I love the looks of hand quilting but the thought of doing it makes me weary. I'm having anxiety attacks just thinking about it.
    Can't wait to see it when it is finished.

    Very nice hand quilting. I will be a prize winner when you are finished. Is this very outside of the quilt? How big will it be when finished?

    Gorgeous! Do you mind telling me what the name of the pattern is and where you got it? You've certainly got your work cut out for you, but it looks like you've got a great start!

    Okay...I thought it was either just me...or maybe the backing was too tightly woven! I have bent soooooooooo many needles...and I haven't even gotten very far yet! I can't imagine how many needles I'll go through doing this! I did find that if I don't try to load too many on the needle, it doesn't bend as much, though.

    But the fabric is very tight...

    When finished it should be approx. 90 X 100. As printed it is 90 X 90...but I added a scalloped border stencil to the sides to make it a little wider. Our bed has a footboard so I don't need the quilts to be longer than they are wide...I need them wider than they are long.

    We have a waterbed frame with an air mattress in it instead of a waterbed mattress, so I have to have extra on the sides to make up for the space taken up by the side rails.
