    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.

    I'm not sure how you should quilt it, but it is amazing! I think Mom-6 has a good point! Echoing would be awesome!

    Ok my jaw dropped when I saw this quilt.:D. I love the 3D effect. Whatever you decide will only add to the beauty of this quilt.

    Awesome quilt! Where did you find the pattern? Was it difficult? I'm looking for you to get a blue ribbon or best in show.

    Wonderful, beautiful, marvelous!!

    How about doing a simple "X" through the the blocks, IMHO I don't think it would take away from the layered affect. PLUS it would be fast and time is of the essence!

    I love your quilt and tried to look up www.toadusa.com to order a kit and was told the domain was for sale. Is there another way to order the kit or do I have the website wrong?

    I just purchased the pattern from toadusew.com. I bought the special edition one because I see a table runner in my future! This will definitely be on my TO DO list.
