Bigger Green Whole Cloth Quilt!

At the end of last year, I finished (I thought) the Green Whole Cloth Quilt.  I blogged about the materials and design  here, I loved the color and design, but decided it just wasn't big enough.  Here is a picture of the original quilt.

So I carefully removed the binding, and added a 12" border, using the same fabrics, thread, etc.  Lots more heavy machine quilting, finished up the last stitching and binding last night!    I haven't finished blocking it yet, so there are a few places where it doesn't hang quite straight, but I couldn't wait to share it!!

The final quilt was 52" x 52" and I hung it in our bedroom, the green matches our "decor" perfectly!I'm so happy with this quilt now, and it looks beautiful hanging on the wall.

Here is a picture of the corner of the quilt, showing the detail.  I should have kept track of how many bobbins I used, so I'd know how much thread it in the quilt!
