Nice!  Your husband looks particularly pleased with the 2 person. Fabric management must have been tough on that one…  now you need the bigger space to spread out a little.

Very cool. A two-person quilt is next on the to-do list for me.

yes, “fabric management” was a challenge for the double.  i typically rolled up the excess and then used clothespins to keep it rolled up and out of the way whilst sewing those loooooong seams.  the momentum is so silky that it slips around and requires careful attention. 

Johnny, best of luck to you.  the design & construction were not at all difficult, but the sheer size of it turned the whole project into quite a female dog.  at the end of it, i understood why Nunatak charges so much for one.

Nice pictures, nice job and colors.  It is not often one can find a 42” tall model.

Dealing with all that down. . . I’m sneezing just thinking about it.
