Queen-sized Country panel quilt

A few months ago I was given some quilting panels featuring country style scenes of houses, barns, churches, and schools.  We’ve been wishing for a large quilt to cuddle under on the couch, so I designed a quilt around the panels and set to work.

Now quilting is not my forte!  I got the thing assembled without too much trouble, but trying to quilt a queen-sized quilt on a regular sewing machine falls somewhere between insanity and a feat of strength!

I pieced the back as well since fabric doesn’t usually come in “queen size.”  I bought quilt binding to finish it off ‘cause by that time I was ready to be DONE!  I took tons of shortcuts and there are loads of imperfections, but at least now we have a usable quilt!
