This is the biggest quilt I have completed. It's a full or double size measuring 90 x 75 inches. I used a mix of new to old fabrics and tried to stay in the yellow green end of the spectrum. One of my limitations is a small apartment with a lot of furniture and stuff on the floors which makes spreading out a real challenge but I managed to get the living room floor clear enough to baste the layers together. The design is like my last quilt, a traditional block design with three bars alternating vertical to horizontal. Using chartreuse green solid with other green patterns on the top was fun and then for an added splash of excitement the reverse side is tangerine with scraps of green & white patchwork. My label is hand embroidered and I am finally getting better at controlling the size of my text embroidery. What is a challenge is to get a big quilt photographed in a small cluttered apartment so please pardon the clutter in my photos.
