I do my quilting on a domestic machine and when I have the really BIG ones, I quilt the center of the quilt first, then I sew on the borders, backing & batting and quilt those separately. Really makes it manageable.

So if you can't find a longarmer near you who can quilt one this big, you might want to have the center longarmed and then do the borders yourself.

You're going to lose a few inches in the quilting - probably just 3-4" of those 77 if the quilting is big and open, but potentially a lot more if the quilting is small and tight.

You may want to look for someone with a 14 foot table. If you could set the top on so the 113" spans the width of the table a 12 foot table might be enough but then you have to add on an extra 6-8" to make the back bigger than the top for a longarmer. I would recommend buying a wide back instead of piecing the back as that wouldn't be much fun....
