    Burgoyne Surrounded is one of the quilts on my "list of quilts I want to make before I die". Your's is really lovely. And yes, I think a square quilt would do very nicely. I've noticed that most king-sized comforters are almost square anyway. If you were feeling wildly ambitious, and had some scraps left, you might consider a couple of pillow shams. They gave a nice finished look to the bed. Your work is exceptional. Congratulations.

    2) Have them put it on their bed with the 112" on the sides and the 94" on the top/bottom. Make them a couple of pillow cases or pillow shams to make up for the difference in the length from top to bottom.

    I hope that is clear. Lots of people don't do the old fashioned turn down at the top and bring over the pillows. Many people like to display their pretty pillow cases, which would be perfect for this issue.

    It will be plenty long on the sides with the 112" and then the pillow cases or pillow shames (or both?) will make up the difference at the top.

    That is one amazing quilt and the will be SO BLESSED to get it as a gift from you. What a wonderful thing to do for them

    I didn't have to take it apart. I did just take off one of the edges and put the last row on. It didn't take long to take off the row. I did it while dinner was cooking and I needed to be in the kitchen area.

    What a great idea! Maybe as an add-on by the end of the summer. I don't think I'll have time to finish it before then, though--just quilting this thing is going to take all the gumption I can muster.

    Your quilt is gorgeous! We have a king bed and I usually make it square...104" being the smallest....the largest I have made is 120" and that has a generous pillow tuck and drapes well over the edges but it's on a tall bed so it works well. There isn't much pillow tuck with a smaller square. So 112" would be a good fit (IMHO)!!

    We love your scrappy quilts and this one is just gorgeous! The quilt size for a king is 100x92 (acording to my handy card from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine) so you are in great shape now and don't really need that extra row but I know you want to do it. What a labor of love and they will be thrilled! I prayed. You'll make it in time for them! The Lord bless you!

    I got it sandwiched now and am procrastinating about attempting to FMQ it. Need to get in there and get started. I have company coming in about a week and a half and I need to get this done!

    It's lovely. One of my favorite patterns. I don't have any advice for you, but I know they will be very touched by your beautiful work.

    A great quilt! I don't know why, but it reminds me of my son's leggo blocks. A keepsake for sure.
