This is a little late. I planned on photographing this quilt a month ago, before giving it to my sister, but I kept on forgetting. Anyways, here it is:
This is by far the largest quilt I've made yet. We were going for a twin sized, its close to it. Although I don't know how much smaller it is all washed up...
Since I'm not very savvy with the free motion, I decided to quilt this one using "somewhat" straight lines 2 inches apart. It was a little tricky wrestling the bulk of the quilt while stitching. Perhaps, next time I do a large quilt, I'll have it long armed. The quilting was slow and steady once I had a few marked lines to follow. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.
The 5 & Dime by All Washed Up quilt pattern was my visual inspiration...however my quilt is a little more narrow than their pattern and much shorter since I had directional prints. My sister really wanted the length, so I added a top & bottom border. You can purchase the pattern here.

My sister is in heaven...she loves the fabrics and that she has her very own handmade quilt. It was such a fun project to make her. Now, what to make my other sister?
