Just ignore the little quilting mistakes and knots; I'm trying to get better about those. You can kind of see the purplish tinge in the blue setting squares in these pictures. I really did love that fabric.
Here's the final quilt. It's really big, big enough to hang over all four sides of my king bed by about 8 inches. There were instructions for drafting the pattern pieces for each bed size, but I used the same pattern pieces my mom used, and apparently she and my sister had some sort of miscommunication during the measuring stages. Apparently some measurement was 3.14, and one of them said, "you know, like pi" which prompted a little dyslexia and the cutting of a pattern piece based on 3.41 instead. It made for some laughs since we're all actually fairly mathy people, but the net result was a couple of very large quilts. Sadly, it means I don't actually have a picture of the whole thing, this picture was taken at the quilt show in Dallas and the top fifteen inches or so are flipped over the hanging pole. The borders do actually go around all four sides.

Here's the label I made for it, from a picture I took on a trip to Eureka Springs last fall. Sorry it's so hard to read.
