I took the picture above 5 minutes ago and the sun was actually out and shining happily through the sheers, which did nothing to help take a good photo. At least you can see how big this monster will be!!
In total, I received 34 (I think this is correct!!) blocks from 21 people. Last weekend I was busy sewing a few more blocks so that I can make this a king size quilt/bedspread for our king sized bed.
However, 49 blocks just didn't seem enough to cover the bed how I wanted it to so I added a 5.5 inch border all the way around. I used yummy Kona purple (I forget the name of the colour). This makes my quilt a KING KONG size and it is now DONE!
I will need to visit my local quilt store - The Village Haberdashery - this weekend for backing fabric because the purple was meant for the backing not the borders! I feel like I am sewing like a maniac because I want to get it all done so I can take it on Sunday to our LMQG meeting where Debbie - one of our members - is a long-arm-sewist-person! I am going to hand over King Kong Wonky so that she can work her magic and quilt it for me!
But I have to finish the back first...
