Thanks for the compliments everyone. Unfinished dimensions - This quilt is made to fit someone who is 6'4" and the original length for the top shell was 83" and the inner shell was 81". Width was 57" at head, 42" at foot. Hems took up 1.5" on each side.

You are a friend everyone would like to have!
Indeed, you are a good friend and a good quilt-maker as well. Congrats to your friend for his accomplishment. Congrats to you for being both thoughtful and generous! I guess you both are coming out of this pretty good!
Awesome job on the quilt, and you are a great friend and I am sure he will appreciate it very much! I know the gifts that I have received from my friends are very special and dear to my heart, so I can only imagine how he will feel about this gift!

It's always best if your an early riser!
That is a sweet TQ - the next item on my list.
Congratulations to your friend. I have 248.8 miles done on the same quest - how long did it take him to finish? I dread the Sugarlands Trail as well.
It took him several years mainly because he wasn't trying to complete them all. Then one day he was like "Well, I've hiked 500 miles of them, it would be cool to finish them all." It took him 4 years after that "Aha" moment. He only works three days a week so he has a little more time to get out there.
There are a few of us from Knoxville on this site. We need to get together and do a Smokies trip sometime. We can coordinate it to help you cover some more miles on your quest.
Nice looking quilt. So, when I finish new englands 100 highest...
