Huge Machine Wholecloth

This is the quilt I made for my Mum and Dad. Mum wanted a quilted cover to put over the bed so it looked nice - I had the fabric - so got to it. The pattern is the same as my other white wholecloth quilt (Luscious by Hermione Agee). I have put double lines along where the quilt hangs off the bed and then I have put vertical lines spaced about 1cm apart on all the panels that hang off the bed. I put a line of vine leaves in the end panel. I really enjoyed making this quilt and it took me a huge three day effort (including binding). I washed the quilt after I had quilted it - and was amazed at how much it shrunk - never mind - Mum now has a lovely quilt that covers the whole bed to the floor. (I really loved making this quilt)

Not too sure about the end corners though - I still might cut them off .

It is also reversible - here is the back (blue) before I bound it.

And here is the front - you can't really see the pattern very well.
