I drove to NY state for my summer vacation. My DD has been patiently waiting for her wedding gift for 2 1/2 years :) I'd never made a king before and doubt that I ever will again. Compared to the wonderful work I see here, my quilting needs improvement. It is fraught with errors at every step. However, she loved the quilt and that's what counts. I quilted it on my Hinterberg frame which is only 9.5 ft long and my 9" Juki. I had to turn it 3 times to reach all of the areas.

That is so awesome. I too have a Juki 2010 and just got a mini pini frame. I agree the throat isn't very big but I love it much more than all the quilts I FMQ on my regular machine. It rocks. I am glad they like the quilt

That is very nice quilt and your daughter looks very happy to have it.
I don't know how your frame looks but I use the table part to trim my quilts. I remove the take up rail and then line up two cutting mats on the table. I start at one end and slide the mats underneath working my way to the other end. It saves my knees from the floor.

That turned out so lovely. I'm sure she thought it was well worth waiting for. Suck a keeper!
Great job with piecing and quilting.
