I was sure at several points in time that this quilt would get the best of me. I powered through though, slow and steady until the last stitch was sewn.
I didn't even skip the intricate pieced border, though I was sorely tempted. The plan was to put away the sewing at 4 and start grading free response essays from Fridays test, but I was too close to the end to give up. As far as quilting, the plan is to save up several larger sized tops that are in various stages of completion so that the frame can be extended out to its full length temporarily. I usually only keep it at a twin/full size so that it will fit in the study better. I think it will still fit in the room even though it will be hard to walk around. If not, I'll bring it out into the formal living/dining room for a weekend marathon of quilting. For now though, I guess I'd better get started on those essays.
