Description

I have come to love "Me and My Sister" and am making a Cal King quilt for my bed out of this. I have a finished product in mind but tend to change my mind as I go. So I have cut all the squares of the layer cake into large diamonds. I was going to stop there but no, I decided to "deconstruct" them all and add gray. This is where I am at now. Will take awhile as this will be a very large quilt. . . March 1st, made a design wall which really is helping with this quilt. I have it all lined out and now to add the grey. And here is what it looks like with the grey added. I really love the way it is turning out. . . April 2nd. Five rows done, four to go. This has been a little challenging getting the rows to line up. I have become good friends with my seam ripper, but I love the way it is turning out. May 18 2015. It is finished. Boy is this big, 130 X 120. And I quilted it myself :). Glad it is done and love the way it turned out.

What a feat but man is it beautiful!

This is a fabulous quilt. I didn't see the early stages of this as you were going along. I guess it was during my travel time. I think your idea really changed this quilt UP and you are brave for doing it. You'll love it forever because you basically designed it yourself.

HawkFan

congratulations on a great finish!
