At long last I can say it is done...except I will wash it before it is used.

 Notice I am not showing real close-ups of the quilting.

The quilting was an experiment I won't do again any time soon.

Each diagonal row of  blocks is quilted in a different design.  The sashing has its own quilting, and the border has meandering.   The quilting was challenging enough just because of the size.  It is approx 84 inches wide and 94 inches long.  

Stitching the binding down is usually one of my favorite parts of quilting, but this was a challenge.  The thread wanted to tangle and knot up time after time.  Even with using beeswax.  And if I was not careful, there would be a knot I did not catch...I had to take out several stitches two different times because I missed one.  I honestly don't know if anyone else would have even noticed...but I knew, so I took them out.  I don't know that I have ever had to take out stitches on my binding...

Anyway, I am so glad it is done...I still need to wash it.
