    I wanted to say that I've not promised it to her.

    She doesn't read QB, I'm sure and it should be a complete surprise if I make it on time. So,....if I don't make it, I'll take it next year as my child nr. 3 will graduate from college NEXT May ('14) and we have to go back to the states again then.

    But I'm trying to make it on time so I'll get off the internet and get back to work for the next half hour til I have to go somewhere....!

    I don't have a king and can't comment on the size, however, I wanted to tell you that your quilt is amazing! I love all those little pieces and the final look when using lots of little pieces. I have been too intimidated to try something like that so far... I need more work on sewing a consistent 1/4 inch seam. I am in awe with quilters who can do it so well.

    Thanks for sharing your photo.

    Oh bless your heart. Its beautiful and so much work, but sometimes it doesn't seem like work when your doing it out of love. I have done several king and the 112 square would work.

    I don't know about the king size bed, but I like a quilt to be on the larger size so it covers the sides of the bed, you know hides the sheets when you make the bed. I love your quilt and I pray you will get it done in time to take with you. I know that your friend is just going to go crazy for it!

    My king size quilts all measure out at 110 x 110. That includes the drop to the floor on the sides and with pillows. Then it is big enough to cover someone on both sides of the bed, which is what my kids wanted and everyone else that got one wanted also. Then you don't need a bed skirt on the bottom. By the way, I just love your quilts.

    This quilt sure is an inspiration. You did a great job.
