What materials did you use? I used charm squares of the Fossil Fern collection along with some white on white background fabric that I had on hand to create the "falling chams or tumbling charms" quilt. Since it would be difficult to maneuver that size of quilt in my Viking one plus machine, I bravely cut the batting and backing into thirds and worked on quilting one-third of the quilt at a time, moving the finished section off to the left so only the unfinished part was under the arm of the machine as I was quilting. Don't look too closely at the quilting, but for a first attempt, I am not too embarrassed by it. I am 2/3 done and ready to start quilting the third section. It seemed almost scandalous to cut up an intact queen sized batting, but reassembling it was not difficult, and you can't tell from looking at the quilt that it was done in sections.
