Top's done!

The top is done and sandwiched with the batting and the backing!

It is ready for me to go and start quilting - right after supper :) One must not forget to eat -even in the middle of a project.

Gwen asked what percent of time I would spend quilting after piecing and everything. I'm guessing it is between 5 and 10 percent. I'm really hoping closer to 5 because I have already spent over 200 hours on the quilt. I know it could take a lot longer. I am not doing anything fancy and I am doing it by machine.

I will spend a lot of time wrestling with a queen sized quilt and my regular sized sewing machine. I know it's doable because I've quilted two other queen quilts on it, but not my favorite part.

Hope to have it ready to bind by the end of the weekend.

Again there are no pictures. William is traveling to Washington DC and took the camera with him. I will post pictures of it finished before I leave for Arizona (one week from tomorrow). Warmth here we come!

That wrestling a queen sized quilt into your regular sized sewing machine doesn't sound fun - good luck! :)
I hope William has a safe and enjoyable trip to D.C.
