Quilting is Exercise for Everyone; Also My Timeline Dilemma

This last weekend I finished all my blocks for my king size top.  My wall was too small  for all the blocks so I transferred them to the den floor. I scooted furniture aside to make room for the pieces and played with them for awhile. I let them lay there overnight until I got my quilty eyes satisfied. 

My back does not blend very well with working on floors, so I conned convinced my DH to help.  I used a new tip (for me) for marking the block places painters tape with row & place # written on it.  DH not only put them on the blocks for me (notice...socks, no shoes), he also helped me pin together and pick up the blocks so I could start sewing them together. 

He was a big help.....I did do some bending and stretching also, but not as much.

I wanted this middle portion of the quilt to be done this weekend, because hopefully this next week I can go back to my LQS and get the rest of the fabric I need to add two borders and perhaps binding.   Let's see:

 Mon LQS is closed,
Tue. the new freezer is expected;
Wed. is my midday exercise;
that leaves only Thursday to head into Big Town and that is the day before...
 Good Friday.

 I'm seeing a big delay coming up... I may have to wait until after Easter to accomplish this as we are expecting company. 

  Figured it out.....I'll head into Big Town on Wed....either before or after my exercise, which is mid-day....and it's on the way. 

Oh,  I finished putting the blocks together this weekend...only have the borders to work up, after my trip to my LQS......

I really, really love this quilt! Blues and brown with a traditional block in a traditional setting. Can come live with me, but I don't have a King bed.

Gotta love a man who helps out with the numbering etc or just any of those essential quilty jobs - he's a keeper alright!
