It's hard to believe I've been up here so long already! It's been fun and I got my quilt done!
I have a king size waterbed with the wooden sides so my quilt needs to be bigger to cover the sides. My plan was that it would be 116 inches square. So I sewed away. I guess I sometimes did a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance because when my sister's friend had it ready to put on her long arm quilting machine, she told me it was 119 inches square which was just a bit too wide for her machine so I took it back home. I removed the outside border on one side, took one whole strip of blocks off and then replaced the border.
When I picked it up from her after she'd quilted it she said it was 111 x 120 inches. That's definitely big enough. I've already sewn the binding on but I like to hand tack it then onto the back so I"ll do that when I get home again.
It's time for me to pack up. I'm leaving early Wednesday morning to head south of the border and home.
So probably not much sewing left for me to finish up here for now.
Until next week, keep weaving!
