Ok. The deadlines need to be adjusted. I know, I know, there is a danger that I won't make it. But I just have to.
To answer Chalicat, I won't be machine quilting it. I don't trust myself to try a new technique with my trusty but wonky sewing machine when I'll be turning it in for inspection. Instead I'll be hand quilting it. Because it is so small (less than 3 x 4 feet) it should not be a huge huge undertaking.
Huh. It sounds almost like I don't know for whom the bell tolls.
