This quilt was what I call a monsta' -- king size, 111 inches by 111 inches. The original plan for this quilt had the sashing in a different color/fabric. I am sooooooo glad that Cathy couldn't find a color that didn't detract from the embroideries. Why? Because once you change the sashing colors it kind of limits the quilting space -- at least this is how I feel.
So here come some awesome pictures of the quilting process:
And finally, the finished quilt:
And it is a crappy picture -- it does not do the quilt justice. The quilt is longer than my ceilings are high, so this is the best I could do. Cathy's Mom sure is a lucky lady, she can't wait to get the quilt... well, in between some shows!
