Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2015 - Large Quilts - Shining Star

Here's my large quilt entry.   This baby measures in at 117 x 117, now that is definitely the largest quilt I have ever made, and likely to ever make!!  This one is for my bed.  I had made one other king size quilt, just a bit smaller than this one, and it was worn out.  Yep holes worn in it from almost 12 years of daily use.  I sure how this one last that long cuz I'm not sure I can do another :)  This is a simple log cabin made with 2 different fat quarter bundles of Kaffee Fassett Shot Cottons.  Oh I LOVE the look of the shot cottons, such depth.  My husband loves log cabins and I like a bit more modern so this was a nice middle ground I think.  I used two layers of battting, Hobbs 80/20 on the bottom and Tuscany Wool on Top.  Glide thread was used on the top and magna glide in the bobbin.   I wanted the quilting to help differentiate between the light and the dark areas.  Light areas got the straight line point to point quilting and the dark areas got the yummy feathers.  No surprise that my quilt has feathers right?  So here's a few pics of fresh new quilt with no holes!!

  5. This is amazing! I'm not usually a fan of Kaffe's fabrics, but I love the way you've used them here. It looks like the lighter sides of the cabins are really beams of light!

  16. Gorgeous colors in this quilt. The quilting is really spectacular, and I love the asymmetry. The use of the 2 different battings produced a great effect.
