    It feels so good to finish a quilt that you have been stressing over for soooooo long. This is a gift, and it had to be "just right". LOL Why do we do that to ourselves??

    Queen size -- That is the size I am most comfortable making. The best part is the giving---I wish I could be there when she sees it for the first time (me - Georgia; her - California). I told my sister (her mom) to take photos of her face when she opens the box.

    Yeah for you! Another UFO finished and in the record books. I hope they get a good picture for you. That has always been one of the things I would have liked to have had. Most of my family is in MN and I have never been there to see them be opened.
