And it's not even finished. Yet. But I'm getting closer. I took this picture to before pulling it off the machine so that I could show you just how big the quilt is. My machine is 120 inches wide, the quilt backing has a wingspan that stretches from one end of the machine to the other. It should end up about 105-110 inches. And it's just as long.
Oh wow, I just had a hint of the amount of binding I'll need. I may as well shoot for 450 inches--12 yards?! That just can't be right. I double checked my math. Then I had Richard do the math. Yes, 12 yards of binding!
Each of the chevrons has a different quilting motif which really stretched my brain and forced me to work with a few motifs that I'm not entirely comfortable with.
But somehow I managed to get through the entire quilt and took it off the machine. I hope to begin cutting out the binding tomorrow and perhaps sew it on over the weekend.
