UFO June-a few details

the current UFO was made with unwashed fabric, the backing was unwashed and the silk batting (Hobbs Tuscany wasn't preshrunk)
before quilting the top was 90 1/2" by 106 1/2"
after quilting the quilt was 87 5/8" by 103 1/2"
after washing/drying the quilt was 83" by 100"
washing/drying details warm wash 10 minute wash-cool water rinse-dried for 30 minutes on the delicate cycle

I decided to finish this UFO to use for a summer quilt

the pictures of the whole quilt didn't turn out well
it appears I have a lighting problem (for photographing large quilts) in this room

I'm back

I've missed blogging and working on my UFO's
I'm back
I've been working on a UFO this week
it's a top I finished some time ago
it took 3 days to get it quilted
below is a detail picture of the top
 below is a picture of the quilt while I was quilting it on the longarm
I got the idea for a stack n wack using squares a few years back
it's a simple concept
I've made several quilts using this technique
