There's a reasonable chance that this quilt is going to be a February finish! I finished the quilting last night and it's ready for trimming and binding, maybe Saturday.
I thought I'd share how I handled the bulky seams in the center.
I could tell that the hopping foot wasn't going to go over the thick seams in the middle so I positioned the foot but the center and checked where it was in the panto pattern.
Of course it was right on a stitching line!
I used a whiteboard marker to draw adjusted stitching lines and did a dry run to make sure I had it right.
It worked perfect! There were a couple of other areas where a bulky seam bumped me off the patter a little but none of those areas are noticeable.
Today we're off to the quilt show!

I would hope the quilt police stay away. My dad always had a saying that if somebody was looking closely enough to see a flaw they deserved to be rewarded for their trouble.

I am glad you got it quilted without any problems. At least not any that you couldn't overcome.

Have a great time shopping at the quilt show Vicki. I remember how I used to love going with a friend, and sometimes having to make an additional trip back out to the car to unload what we had already purchased. Then we got smart, and bought collapsible carts on wheels, which was much easier. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful, and intensely difficult new quilt, on your bed.

Your solution was a good one! That is a lot of binding to try and get done to make it a February finish. I have no finishes for February, but I did so good in January that not having a finish in February doesn't bother me.
