Linking up with the Small Blog Meet over at Lily's Quilts and A Lovely Year of Finishes over at Fiber of All Sorts and Sew BitterSweet Designs.
Here's February's completed project....
I have struggled to come up with a name for this quilt over the last month, and have resorted to calling it the King-sized Bed Quilt. However I have now decided to call this one Simply Pinks and Blues - because one feature that I really love about this quilt is how simple it is, and I would have to say for all its simplicity, that it is the backing of which I love most about this quilt. Enjoy the photo's....

I roughly calculated the size of this quilt before sending this off to Sue B for quilting, and I calculated approx 95" by 105". However I was told last night by Sue that the Quilt is actually 110" by 113" - so this really is a gigantic quilt - although that is what was recipient has requested!
What has been the biggest quilt you've worked on to date?

I used the left over fabric for the binding... I just had enough to complete the quilt. I love this section of the binding - the pink part is a real standout feature of the binding, and work's nicely with the Pink star on the backing.

Here's another project that I've just started, the Tokyo Subway Map Quilt. This one is a bit of fun, and I've completed 2 blocks (out of 25) to date, and about to start on the third.
