This was a huge project that I quilted in one piece on my Bernina. We, and the cats, are pleased with the results :-).

Very nice. Is this a standard bed size? What is the pattern name?

I started with the fabrics from Marcus Fabrics, The Mills Girls 1830-1850 collections, then added others from Windham Mills and others that mixed and matched well. I chose about 8 or 9 block patterns then made each about 3 times using the fabrics in different combinations. I put them on a desing wall to place them with no two together, added sashing and orner stones, quilted, bound it - and voila! In short, there was no particular pattern :-) .

Queen - It ended up being 93"x93". We use it as a bed spread. It's heavy, so we fold it back at night and sleep under our down comforter/duvet.
