I made this quilt a few months ago for my parents, and just realized that I haven't posted pictures here yet.
It's a queen size, a little longer than a standard one so that the pillows can be underneath & the quilt can tuck in under them a bit. The fabrics were picked to match a wall-hanging that they have, and all came from Roelofs'. They had the perfect fabric collection that coordinated together, and so that helped alot with the fabric choosing. I really made the ladies at the store get a work-out, I think there were something like 40 different fabrics in the quilt! But I like the variety & scrappy sort of look.
Mom wanted a higher-loft to the quilt, and so the quilting is light custom, trying to keep the quilting from getting too dense. The original pattern did not have the diamond border, I made that using some blocks that were left over from piecing the middle of the quilt. I was very happy with that border, and think it really adds alot to the quilt.
They're smiling.... I think they like it! :-)
