    [QUOTE=Doggramma;6857828]Wow that sure is an impressive quilt! Maybe next time you could do the blocks bigger? It would still be heavy, but you'd be done quicker.[/QUO

    Great idea Lori but still not making one like this. Thank you for your comments.

It's also hard to find individual sheets sold separately.
    I have bought sets of sheets and used the bottom ones for smaller quilts. Works for me ...
