Just how big is a queen size quilt?

So here it is...my KScope quilt top, all 91" x 115" of it. That's 1,968 wedges; 1,000 corner triangles and 144 border squares and it all fits into these four little baskets - well, just about fits. I know 91" x 115" seems a little big, its the size we need for it to lie on the bed like a spread. Whew - that's a lot of quilting!

Now to sew all these little pieces back together!
