This is a custom order for a man's retirement gift. The quilt is made up of his striped shirts, plus assorted pieces of my own.
Final measurements: 91 x 102". I'm pretty sure this is the largest quilt I've ever made.
I admire people who have the patience to piece together a back for a quilt this size, but I went the quick and easy route with extra wide fabric.
I think also that basting goes a little easier if there aren't any seams on the back to stretch and distort.
I like the polka dot binding!
It was about 400 inches of hand sewing to finish the binding-- that adds up to more TV watching than I've done in a long time.
here, and it's easy and fun!
