Then you just rotate them to get the desired effect. The borders were also 3.5" wide. The king size quilt was 106" x 117", 9 blocks by 10 blocks. Thanks for your kind comments.

This quilt will be donated to the Red Willow Bible Camp quilt auction fundraiser.

Then two baby quilts, the blue I just did simple wavy line quilting, the other is hand quilted SITD, they just need binding.
Next is a preview of a WIP for #8 - all the blocks are made, just have to finish putting them together.
