I've wrestled the king

I've made one other king sized quilt before. That one is currently at the long arm quilters.





Now, I've made two. And I think two is enough.




I'll show better photos once it too is back from the long arm quilter.

P.S. This is the Bento Box quilt that I've been working on. It measures 100" x 114". Sheesh.

Wow! I've made a queen once and it was more than enough for me! I'm impressed!

holy cats! two of them recently! those photos do a great job of making them look like they go on forever.... did it begin to feel that way when you were piecing it? i'm excited to see the finished product though...... bet they're gorgeous ;-)

I am totally impressed with your stamina for doing those - I've only tackled smaller scale stuff for fear of not finishing! I can't wait to see it in all it's quilted glory!

Molly said...

I am with ya. The bigger the quilt, the less fun it seems to be!

Michaela said...

Oh, I can hardly wait. It looks great! It must feel good to be done.

I can barely make a lap quilt and you've gone and done TWO kings? :) You're amazing!

Amy said...

Next time you drive up behind a tractor trailer rig, note that the door on the rear end of that trailer is about the same size as a king size quilt. That's HUGE. Sheesh is right!

I'm having a tough time finding a long arm quilter to complete my projects. Do you mind telling me who you use?

Just Jenn said...

Looks promising!

Wow, I am really impressed. I just finished a double/queen and I'm not even sure how I did that one. Hat's off to you for sticking with it. Gorgeous fabrics too.
