Jane's Star Block Quilt-finished!

Rolled off the long arm yesterday.
A Reeeee-lly big quilt! 105" long x 93" wide. This is laying across our king size bed. I don't normally do big quilts like this one.  Jane gave me the beautiful star quilt blocks as a birthday gift years ago.  It's only fitting that I finally get around to enjoying them in a quilt! 
It helped to have a wide one piece quilt backing and Hobbs 80/20 batting. The quilt is heavy and it helped to have a power take up roller on the long arm to deal with the bulk of this quilt.   I have a lot of binding to make.
It's a good feeling to have this almost finished. Sassy thinks so too!

I laughed out loud when I scrolled to the picture of the quilt - and Sassy sitting pretty for the camera! She is soooo darn cute! Think she's knows it? Oh, yes, and of course the quilt is truly worthy of her attention. That's going to be a keeper for sure.
