It's quilted and assembled and now I have to decide if it is big enough, or needs a border? At this point it measures 53x58.5".
If I piece a border, I am thinking ten inches all around making it 73x78". Still not big enough to cover a bed, but big enough to cover a body for a nap. But if I think of it as an art quilt for the wall, then this size is definitely big enough. What do you think?
Here's a detail of the quilting and the narrow connector strips. Click twice for a really close look.
I quilted it in four pieces, with a walking foot, and then trimmed and connected the panels with QAYG narrow connector strips. Each panel took about an hour, with breaks to pet the dawgs, and feed the fish. I fooled around most of the weekend, so the majority of the quilting was done today. It seemed like a good workday.
