Your friend really did a nice job on the quilting.  What kind of quilter does she have that was able to handle this huge quilt??

I believe she has a gammil statler??  I know she has the 14ft table :D saved my life! lol...the quilt measures 7.5ft x 17.5ft  so I was majorly relieved that I didn't have to quilt it on my standard machine!

That is SOOOO cool!! where in the world do you put a 17.5 foot long quilt??? Sounds like you could cover an entire pew at church with it in the winter- how cool would that be! I would love to see the rest of the quilt.

My friend calls her Statler..."Harley"cause when we were looking at it in Chicago at a quilt show,she found out her husband bought a harley at home and so not knowing if he was teasing or not, she told him if he did she was going to order herself a long arm. When we got home you should have heard us all as the garage door went up to reveal a harley-davidson!She ordered her long arm the next morning!

OMGosh, this is wonderful!  Oh to quilt 1/4 as good would be my dream come true.  Does your friend teach?  Can she teach long distance?

WOW! I am just loving all the excitement! Wonderful comments yall! Thank you so much!  I just got back from the International Quilt Festival in Houston and I was so shocked at how many people had seen it online already!  Linda, that's a great story! hahaaha....i'm in the process of getting my longarm...hopefully soon!  and Marie, my friend who quilted it is Ludie Smith, you can find her on facebook and ask her if she teaches.  I'm not sure if she does.  She's in Cali though and a wonderful woman! I got to meet Eleanor Burns today at the show and told her about Ludie and Big Bertha, she just gasped at the photos! :D Ludie quilted her 'rookies' Quilt of Valor!

Sorry Claudia, forgot to answer! lol...it's been a long day!  This quilt will be going on the ceiling of a bus that transports disabled veterans to long distance medical appointments where they would normally be able to take public transportation but because of their disabilities they are unable to do so.  it's located at www.servingproject.org and he does everything on donations alone!  It's an amazing project!
