    I have been working on it since April. 6 months. Now I have to get it quilted. Any idea how much it costs to get it quilted???

    I've never sent anything out to be quilted, so can't help with that question...but I just had to say WOW. It's breathtaking. Love love love it.

    This is GORGEOUS!! I love it! The colors are so unique for an applique and would go with almost any decor.

    I suppose the quilting would depend on who you bring it to and how fancy the quilting is. I would not go cheap with this quilt- it's so pretty!

    That is beautiful. The colors came through in the overall shot, not so much in the closeup. Did you try to enlarge the closeup? Could you take a zoom photo of a block or two?

    It is spectacular. I would be afraid to quilt it. I have never worked with silk on that scale. What ever you have to pay it would be worth it if they know how to handle silk.

    Oh my goodness...that is an absolutely breathtaking quilt. I love Jenny Haskins patterns. You have done an amazing job...beautiful.
    Can't help with the quilting questions (do it all myself), but I agree...shell out the extra $s for this beauty.
    Please post another picture once it's done so we can all drool a little more :)

    Absolutely gorgeous, beautiful and stunning...there really isn't any words that say how incredible your quilt is!!! And I agree, do splurge on the quilting...to do anything else would be disrespectful of your time and effort. And I won't even suggest you send it on to me...how could you ever part with such a beauty??? :P

    I think that you could contact a local guild and get the name of a long arm quilter in your area. There are some very talented quilter's in your area. Ever go to one of thier shows?

    It will depend on the design that will be done on it and the amount of bobbins that are used. Some gals charge by the square inch. Around here for an allover design for a queen is about a hundred and fourty dollars. But, I am thinking that might be a lot more because of buying the silk threads that will be required and the specialty designs that it deserves.

    That is a family treasure fo sure... goregeous!

    I've never seen anything quite like that. It is gorgeous. Did you make up the patterns yourself?
