A Finish! King Size Squares and Frames


Finally! I finished the king size quilt for my bed. I love it! I tried to fix the lighting in photoshop, but it just made the colors all weird, so I hope you can see these. Click on them to make them bigger if you want to see them better.


Here it is on the bed, with the blue and green rows on my husband's side and the pink and red rows on my side (plus the snuggle row in the middle of blue/green plus red/pink in each block).


The snuggle row is vertical with mermaids/green in this photo.


And here's the back. It took forever to quilt this thing, but I plodded through, with a goal of a couple of blocks per day, and it only took a month (!). The whole quilt has taken months, in between working on lots of other stuff, and has fought me at times, but I finally get to keep a quilt! Yay!

This is the BEST! I'm so happy you finished it and you're happy with it and that it's on the bed! It's really awesome. Happy belated birthday. 39 is a good age...almost 40 and the 40's are GREAT! At least I liked the 40's much better than the 30's in most things anyway. You look beautiful...now and last year too!
