I was part of an IRR group last year...and so was MHolmes. He chose a 30's center and it worked out to be a queen size quilt. It's around a 100x100. HUGE!
I think it turned out lovely. I added the bow-tie border...that was so much fun!
I love this board because of the relationships I have formed. Michael and I have met in person several times even though we live thousands of miles apart. He and I are like long lost brother and sister...I even went on vacation with him (and a few girlfriends) and we all just had a blast!
Anyway getting back to this IRR......Mike sent it to me for quilting....and I just treated each border accordingly.....lots of texture...fun -whimsy designs. I know he will love it!
