Am I nuts or what?

Not only do I have a queen size quilt in the frame. . .




I now have a second one in the frame in my living room. Thank goodness for a big living room.

This one should go very quickly. Not as quick as I first thought. It measures 53 by 83 inches. It is 4 layers of quilt batting sandwiched between calico and some gosh heavy duck fabric. I am tying it every 3 inches with double crochet thread. Need I tell you it's a hard pull?  Needle nose pliers are now my best friend. It will be a pad for our Casita camper bed!

See you after my fingers recover!

You Go Girl-- two frames going at once!

You are inspiring me to get the frame my FIL made for me out. I find it easier to use a hoop, and I feel guilty after all the work he did to make it. They do take up a lot of room, but I love the nostalgia feeling of a quilt in a frame.
