This is my Moby Dick.
I recently finished up this lovely for my bed after only a year of stitching. Actually, it was my "project-between-projects." You know... that thing you do when you really don't have anything else to do but then when you're sick of it you tell yourself that's it's OK not to work on it?? Yeah, that project.
The center stars are paper pieced and then there were something like 60 flying geese units and I think about 35 or 40 Ohio stars... The thing is just so darn big!
How big is it??
Well, technically it's only about a full size quilt but it's just one of the largest quilts I've ever done. I actually had to move my kitchen table OUT of my kitchen in order to baste it.
You can't really see the block but look real close. I used my embroidery machine to quilt a floral-esq design into each of these plain squares. I did this sixty times! Hoop, stitch, unhoop...hoop, stitch, unhoop... SIXTY TIMES. I actually stripped the screw on my embroidery hoop! Luckily, I'm in good with a machinist who whipped me up a very fancy new screw in a matter of minutes. ;)
Was it worth all that hard work?? Are you kidding! Check out how FABULOUS it looks on my bed!
