    The center eagle is a panel, the rest is pieced. It's called Winter Whispers.

    That is beautiful! It's huge, and I love the quilting, especially the diagonal spray to the upper left of the eagle. She's so lucky to get this.

    So happy that you finished - the quilt is beautiful. Sometimes quilts have a time table of their own.

    Wow very nice. I have been trying to figure out how to extend a panel or lap quilt into a full size quilt and making it look like it was supposed to be big. You nailed it. It looks perfect

    It certainly got the dog's approval !!! I am certain she will treasure this beautiful quilt.

    Oops...I was wrong, its not Northcott, its Wilmington Prints by Michelle Mara for the center portion of the quilt to the first pieced border.

    I love that! My mom had a house on the river complete with Eagle nested in a tree in the winter. Haven't thought about that Eagle in a while - thanks!!

    What an amazingly beautiful job you did. I just purchased this panel myself and would like to make a lap quilt out of it. I absolutely love the color choices that you made. I can not quite tell what the lighter tans and browns are. Would you by any chance remember the fabric color name/line they came from? I am a new quilter and this is so exciting. I would greatly appreciate any information you could provide. Thank You so much I look forward to your reply.

    I'm guessing you have a very large long arm, because it was so big to begin with! I'm jealous! The largest I have ever done is 104x108 and I thought that was huge! What machine do you use? Love you courage to tackle a project that size! You're my hero!

    Thank you so much, I was ever so glad to be finished with this one.

    The brown & creme tone fabrics were Stonehenge by Northcott: dark brown, apollo, mojave, and spatter. There are so many Stonehenge fabrics that work well with nature type quilts. I'm working on another one now, but it has a lot of applique, so it may be a while!

    Thank you, this one was pretty stressful to say the least! Actually I did the stitch in the ditch on my Janome 6600 (that was NO fun), and bought an HQ Sweet 16 sit-down machine to do the fmq because I could no longer wrestle it through my small machine.
