I would hate to see your beautiful work taken apart. Try it on the bed or make another one. Love it! The borders really set it off.

It's wonderful :) And to my way of thinking, a quilt this size is just perfect.

Today's newer mattresses are really thick and to me your quilt is the perfect size. Don't change a thing.

It won't drag on to the floor - and it will grow with him. Don't touch it - other than to finish it lol ;)

That's exactly what I was thinking. If it's way too big--make another smaller one, but don't change this beautiful piece!!!

its a GREAT SIZE!!! the width will give a bit of overhang- the length is fine- you may have to tuck it in on the bottom- but he will love it just the way it is!!!
is he a little guy?or an adult?
if a little guy- he will grow into it-
if already grown---my sons tell me you can not make a quilt too long- they like them long enough to tuck under their feet when snuggling---
nothing wrong with long-

and as for what you did wrong?????????what size does the pattern say it's supposed to be? it seems quite (right) from the pictures- beautiful quilt!

Beautiful! If you take off the borders it will change the look. I agree. A bigger quilt is better especially for growing room. How old is your Logan? Mine is only 7. :) Even my Logan would love a quilt like this! ;) Love it!!
