Longest work in progress

I finally finished my longest WIP.  It is a king sized bed spread.  I deliberately don't use the word quilt, in regard to this piece, because it isn't a quilt.  This has no batting and thus is not a quilt.  I made this as a quilt as you go project so that I could do it all on my home machine.  I started with one width of fabric piece of flannel for the backing and added full width pieced strips that were between a foot and 18 inches tall.

I used a lot of Joel Dewberry Aviary II, along with some matching Kona solids and whatever other grey and yellow fabrics that struck my fancy.

The flannel backing helps to keep it from sliding off and it's generous size ensures that both Hubby and I remain covered.
