Default Finished scrappy burgoyne TOP only finished using 1.5" strips - large

It's just the top. I'm hoping to have time to finish it before we leave for the states on April 30. After I posted my smaller one (finished quilt) to FB, one of my older FB friends said that she would love it in king size. I know that she is just dreaming (she lives in a Mennonite area of KS) but I also knew that I would try to finish one and bring it to her. They are retired pastor and wife from KS and I would love to present it to them when we visit their church in May. We'll see if I can finish it in time.

This couple has always lived a very conservative lifestyle and I know that they've not always had the money to do/go places that other pastors in their area have had.

If I have time to finish it before we leave, I'd love to give it to them as a gift and appreciation for their years of service. It's 112x94", however, though I think I need to make it a 6x6 layout instead of 5x6. I guess I could just take off the edge and add 6 more blocks on the side.)

Does anyone here have a King bed? Would a square quilt be objectionable? My chart (a chart I made) tells me that a king size is normally between 104-120" wide and 110-118" in length. This would mean that a 112" square quilt would be technically okay. Is it?

Square quilts work fine on king size beds. You have done a fantastic job on this! Hope you get it done.
