    This is the kingsize quilt I made as a swap for the man who built my gazebo. It was done in 4 different sections on my Janome. I used basting spray to help hold it together while I marked it, then pinned, pinned and pinned. It took me 3 months to do.

    That is beautiful. I love the colors. Great pattern and the pillows are the finishing touch.

    I LOVE it!! When you said king sized, I was thinking the size of the bed. That came out terrific! Good job.

    Deb, it's absolutely gorgeous!! :thumbup: If my eye is telling me right, is the leaf fabric you used, the same as the leaf fabric that I made your QB blocks out of? :D How could this be? I can't believe that we picked out the same fabric. It's wonderful!!
    :D :D :D :D

    Nah...I may be short, but I am not stupid. My gazebo is definately the better of the deal. There are pics of it someplace on this site. He had to work in the hot sun - haul the lumber by himself, I was able to sew in a cool room, with tv. It took him 18 days to build it, so time wise it did take me longer. :roll:

    He actually designed the quilt himself, I suggested some changes as I went along. I made pillow shams as well, he didn't know what they were....but loves the addition to the bed.
