New Bed Quilt

Many weeks ago, I was reading Alicia Paulson's blog (which is lovely!), and she posted a new quilt pattern, and I just fell in love with it...

And then I downloaded the instructions, and it looked...easy.

So I dashed to JoAnn's, dusted off the sewing machine, and got going...because I decided to make a queen size quilt for my bed to spruce things up.

My biggest.quilt.ever.

728 squares, many, many hours of piecing, backing, quilting, blind stitching, trimming and washing later, I have my masterpiece!

I'm in love. :-)

I even whipped up a couple of pillowcases to finish it off!

What do you think?

Bored now. Can we stop taking pictures of the quilt?
