The hardest part of quilting any quilt bigger than a throw is the middle and that is especially true of a king sized quilt. The middle is a bitch! However, once you get the very middle out of the way is does get a little easier. And after you've finished the middle part, and your forearms feel like Popeye's, and you lay it out on the bed to take a good look at it and it looks FREAKIN' GREAT, you can then jump up and down with glee cause you have just done something hard and you have done it well! Yipee! and Yehaw! Quilting makes my skirt fly up! Now I'm off to quilt some more. Happy Quilting!
