    Default Elnora's Flower Garden: Finally Finished!

    I FINALLY finished my niece's wedding present. And I'm happy to report she and her husband love it. At 88x106, it's either a large queen or a small king. And I found out last weekend that they have a full bed. The key point, however, is that it's big enough for the groom, who is 6'7" tall! HUGE HUGE thanks to Sandy Navas who made the perfect label for it.

    If you can't see it from 50 yards away on a galloping horse, it doesn't matter.

    Its beautiful and if he is 6'7" he needs it to be that long otherwise his footsies will be cold

    Beautiful job! I'm sure he will appreciate how large the quilt is.I bet it's hard to find blankets long enough to cover his feet.

    My humble pleasure to work with you!!

    That turned out great. Plenty big enough to keep his long self warm.

    Beautiful quilt, and larger is better than smaller. This way, they're covered when they get a larger bed.

    It turned out beautiful and I'm glad they loved it. It's really a job making a quilt for those over 6' tall but it looks like it will cover the groom nicely. Great job!
