I had one goal and one goal only while in Atlanta: work on my Good Folks king quilt. And...I even finished the top!!
I have had this bundle of Good Folks for almost 3 years, and was too paralyzed to cut it. I knew I wanted something special just for me. Finally, I decided it was Time. And go big or go home....how about a king quilt for our bed?
Being a king quilt, I wanted larger blocks to keep things proportional. And, I am not gonna lie to you, I didn't want to spend a million years cutting teeny tiny pieces, so that by the time it was done, I hated the thing. Besides, Anna Maria's fabrics look amazing in larger chunks. These blocks finish up at 15" each.
I am happy to say (and I have witnesses), that not only was I gushing and giddy the entire time that I was sewing this top, I didn't even utter a single swear word during its construction. True story!
It came together much faster than I had even dared to dream it would. But I was on a mission. Juki and I went hard!
I decided to use a mixture of low volume fabrics as my neutral, and this is one of my favorite parts of the quilt.
I bought a bunch of buttery Little Folks voile for the back.
This baby finishes up at 120" by 90"! It will be sent to Krista to do some quilting magic :)
