So as it turns out, they CAN be too big.

To put this in perspective, we had to take the trim off our doors to get those couches into the house. (They look like love seats next to "Bubba", as I've "affectionately" dubbed this quilt.) This quilt is 111" wide, so I guess I got a little carried away.

Here's the story: we needed a quilt for our bed, which is king size, and has a tall pillowtop mattress, so we needed it to be even bigger than king size. I figured this would do, but it's too big. (Go figure!) The width is actually ok, but it hangs off the end really far. So I need to make it 6 rows by 7 rows instead of 7 x 7.

Yeah, I'll be over here with my seam ripper.

PS- This quilt was my inspiration, along with this. I will post nicer pictures when Bubba is a little less, er, "tentlike".
