But I was so intimidated by the scale of this project! To make large enough wings I knew it would need to be queen sized, and the largest wholecloth quilts I've made were wall hangings:

Earlier this year while chatting with Jess at Quilty Habit we both mentioned having large wholecloth quilts planned for this year and she suggested having a friendly challenge between us (mostly as a way to encourage and motivate each other!). Finally this month we were both ready to start the challenge! You can follow our progress through our blogs (see her intro post here) and on Instagram under #wholeclothquiltchallenge
So, to get started I finally picked out fabric and threads! I chose to use the new wide backing Luxe sateen solids from Michael Miller and a variety of 28, 40 and 50 weight threads from Aurifil.

Aurifil has generously agreed to sponsor the threads for this project, I am so excited to get the 28 and 40wt threads to play with!
