A whale of a quilt

     What I mean is the size. The biggest I ever quilted. It just fit on my frame. Yikes. I was asked to quilt the President's gift. Our guild's term for president is three years- from quilt show to quilt show. At the end, the president gets a gift. Like a wall hanging, scrapbook, etc. This year we were asked to make blocks. When the quilt, backing and batting showed up, I fell over when the quilt was unfolded- it was immense. I had to keep the quilting simple, but interesting. I only had 2 weeks to quilt it as it had to be bound and labeled in time for our party. I was relieved to get it out the door. 
Can you say fill the frame?

Nice gift. I was president of one of my guilds for 3 years, but, I only got a few 'thank you's' from the members.

I did one that filled my frame once and I decided never again. It was almost impossible to change the bobbin with so little space at the end.

Is that a Nolting Pro longarm? That's what my friend Chris uses!
