This is the way we put it on our king size bed. My models are my mother and my friend, long arm quilter, Irene Hensley.

Irene quilted the piece adding lots of texture in the dead space. The quilting design she used gives it movement in the solid areas and still shows the block lineup. I love it!

Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks", please feel free to look around, and leave a comment. Enjoy the rest of the "Blogger's Quilt Festival". Remember my number is #107. It has been a pleasure, Lisa...
