So, just a quick little break from the card posts to report that YES I did deliver "Quilt-Zilla" to my brother and his girlfriend during my visit to Newfoundland.
Here's the proof -- goober me sitting on the quilt in my Mom's living room.
Quilt-Zilla in all it's gargantuan glory. I think it finally measured 108 inches square. I think. I'd have to check to be sure. It might be more.

My signature on the back of the quilt. I only put the year of completion in my sig and did not include the year I started (2007). Yes it took me 27 months from the time I purchased the fabric to the time I handed it over.
During that time, my brother and his family moved back to Newfoundland from Alberta. But, I'm picky about when I can work on a quilt and encountered a few setbacks while making it. Learned that I could not be trusted with coffee in the craft room. I can honestly say that blood, sweat, tears and COFFEE went into the making of this quilt.
But, it is finally finished. Now I have to make the matching pillow shams. Hopefully that won't take me two years.
