    Ok - I have 3 weeks to finish this thing in order to enter it in the Durham Fair in CT and I already lost a week due to business travel in Polnad and another week due to business travel in Atlanta. Yikes!

    I am putting on a 3" black border and then I am going to machine quilt it in 2 sections (even with a 9" bed, I can't handle a 5 foot quilt :-(

    Any advice on the quilting pattern? I am thinking of dividing the quilt into 4 sections and doing half circles in each section about 2 inches apart. The pattern is so busy that I don't want to take away from it but I am afraid that lines will be too much.

    With the geometric what about circles in circles? Start with smaller ones in the middles and work out to a very large on around the end. It keeps the inward motion going.

    Awesome three dimensional look! I think I would echo the pattern of the design to enhance the dimensionality.

    I know the rule of thumb about doing circles on a quilt that has lots of straight lines, but in this case somehow I don't think it would enhance it.

    This is a pattern called 'Think Outside the Box' - toadusa.com has a kit that you can order. Several quilters on the forum have made or are in the process of making this - either with the kit or without (I reverse-engineered it). If you do a search, it should come up.
