|Rolling the excess and pinning it really helped manage the bulk.|
I had my brother, Jeff, in mind when I pieced this one, but since I have already given John a quilt, I think that I will continue in chronological order, and send this one to Jim. That leaves Jeff, and then Ted to make future quilts for. This one, like John's, is what i consider a generous nap-sized quilt. It finished at 54 inches by 75 inches......a bit smaller than John's, but Jim is shorter, so I think it will be fine for him.
Hopefully, I'll get it wrapped and sent sometime in the next week.
