Huge quilt top done!



Just had to post a picture or two before work! This is my sister Julie's quilt. It was really fun to do because it was so unusual....I sewed it all in straight rows and then cut it into three different pieces, rearranged them and then sewed them back together..It then made all the straight blocks become "set on point blocks". This thing is huge! They have a king, and it is so big, you cant even see the borders...Jace likes it too and wanted to model it...I am hoping to quilt it on Sunday but I cant find a piece to my quilting machine......

Nice quilt! I swear every time a customer brings me a quilt to quilt that they must be sleeping with more than one person as their quilts are so huge! LOL I just got one on my frame now that's a 142 inches! That's pushing it!
