I've been piecing and quilting all weekend and today. I need to finish trimming threads and take some photos before I post the final product. I didn't realize how big and heavy it was going to be. I suppose most quilt makers have an idea if not an exact understanding of how big their quilts are going to be before they start. For me it is a total surprise. Anyway this big boy (and it is a boy quilt) will be great at picnics and campfires. Here are some photos (for now) of things that surrounded me while I worked. I apologize if you saw these on Facebook already. I wanted to share to many audiences. Now I've overstated their significance.
