Quilting the Monster

This top ended up 105 inches square. It weighs a ton! I wasn’t real happy with my fat feathers in the border, but I certainly wasn’t going to rip them out.

I do like the idea I came up with for the inner border.

I used this clamshell ruler to make it.

The crosshatching in the center is bigger than I like, but I didn’t want to overquilt the middle with those fat feathers in the border.

It felt like I’d never get to the end of it. Next up, miles of binding! Also, the Accuquilt Blog Hop continues. See the schedule below.

Have a great day!

    Katy, I love this! I would not have thought to put clam shells in a border, but it is a perfect companion to the feathers! Looking forward to seeing it after the miles of binding are applied!
    As always, thanks so much for sharing!

    Ooh, love those border feathers, they are just the motif I was looking for to use in a log cabin block wall hangng that’s been languishing. This may be just the inspiration I need to give it another try! And I didn’t know about the blog hop so glad I haven’t missed much of it yet!
