Q&A with Ellen74

Ellen74 asked:
Here's my finished quilt top. Idread the actual quilt sandwich and batting since this is the largest size I've ever made. I love it!
Ellen74 answered:
What's you Facebook page link?
calicosnowman asked:
Your border fabric looks just like the material I made a top for my husband! I made it a whole cloth top, did use a white border, then added the same material for a wider boarder. That's what he wanted. This is very pretty, great way to use all kinds of blues. Size?
Ellen74 answered:
King size. Haven't measured the actual width and length.
Hobbystash asked:
Oh my gosh! It's absolutely gorgeous!!!!
Ellen74 answered:
Thank you! It's so big I had a hard time taking the picture. I really appreciate you posting the pattern. I can't wait for this quilt to be on our bed. Now I have to find a tutorial for pillow shams so I can match. I am dreading quilting this on my domestic machine.
Hobbystash asked:
Keeping in mind, that it will shrink a bit when it is quilted, and more when it is washed, have you draped it on your bed to make sure you have the drop you want? Now's the time to add another border if it's iffy. And yes that adds to the amount to be quilted on your domestic....it will be a challenge for sure.
Ellen74 answered:
It fits our bed perfectly even with shrinkage factored in. I also pre-wash my fabrics except for my pre-cuts ;-)
