This is my last large quilt (76 x 97 Twin). I have had so much fun making it.  It was from a quilt kit but I just loved the design and colors.  It is going on my King size bed, laid sideways so end design shows on sides of bed,  just in time for fall.  I used Press-N-Seal for most of the quilting and quilted more than I ever thought I could possibly do on a small home sewing machine.  (Press-N-Seal is clear so easy to use permanent Black Sharpie marker to trace designs from books or free hand onto, then place and straighten over area to be designed and sew through.  Peeling off the PNS is even fun, I use an old/dull seam ripper for most peeling.  This is the best Tip I received this year.)

Thank you ladies, I edited my post to tell about the Press-N-Seal.  Great product, I like it better than chalk or quilting markers.  My mother has even used it and gives it a thumbs up.

It is amazing! Blue sky and autumn leaves. I wanted the same blanket. , And you can find out what size strips and blocks as the color of fabric you used? Please!

Well Done!  Quilting a large quilt on a domestic machine can be a challenge but SO rewarding when it's complete. Colors are beautiful.
