Finished by not blogged in 2020 was this stunning Blooming Nine Patch oversized king size quilt in Kaffe Fassett! The quilt top was made by Joanne, and quilted and bound by me.
My customer knew exactly what she was after, and we worked together at every step of the process to make it happen. She chose the size, design, the exact fabrics for the entire quilt, approved fabric placement, and then chose the quilting design.
It is truly their quilt!
They wanted a huge quilt, and they got it. This one is 120" square. Did you know that batting in general comes a few inches larger than the package says? It's true, so I didn't have to piece batting together. A King size batting package is labeled 120" square, but has a few inches to spare on each side. This quilt is definitely the largest I can quilt on my longarm quilting machine. The backing fabric is three widths of 44" fabric. That's 10-3/4 yards of backing.
It's pictured on a Queen size bed, and you can see how much it drags on the floor.
My customer chose Diagonal Bias Plaid for the quilting design. Its simplicity perfectly complements the busy-ness of the fabric and creates added dimension to the quilt. Quilting was done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher in medium gray thread to blend into as much of the quilt as possible.
The entire quilt except the binding is made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The binding is a solid navy. You can find a huge selection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics right here.
I do not have a list of the exact fabrics used.
