I never realized how much work actually went into making this queen sized quilt. I have made a handful of quilts but never as big and never as many pieces until now.
Over the past three days I have been planning, cutting, ironing and sewing like a mad woman! I totaled up that I cut out 315 pieces and it doesn't seem like that large of a number. But, it is when you feel like you have been doing it for a hundred years.
I just finished the top piece of the quilt. It is at this point that I am so ecstatic that I got the top finish but then quickly realize that I am still not done! I need to either find a big sheet to put on the back and put the batting in the center OR piece together a back. Either way it is still more work...

When I started to sew them I saw that they were surprisingly coming together nicely. I am really happy with the outcome. Now to get working on the back so I can use it.
