    K, so ideally, I would have wanted an extra row to make it rectangular, but I'm running out of patience and time, since this is a Christmas gift, and I have yet to do the borders, and put it together (obviously), AND I have a whole other quilt to make for my in-laws (!). So, I think I'm just going to leave it square. There will be an extra 12 inches all around since I'm putting a 4 and a 2 inch border on it, in plain blue and red, so basically it will be about 70" x 70"... that's ok to go on the back of a sofa, right?

    Anyway, folks, let me know what you all think of it :) (be nice, I'm still a noob )

    ok, second attempt at adding pics.... ACK it's huge, sorry!

    Sweet Melanie,

    I just love Canadian and British words... I'd never hear of a "Noob" before, I've hear of a slag we use to use "Snoob" Looking it up now it has the same meaning, but I like the word Noob much better. How cute it that! I'll have to remember that one!
    When I was a noob I sure wish I was as good a new are!
    I think your quilt is great, I really like your choice of colors too.

    The person you give this to will surely love your work. Some times we are very critical of our own work, but those that know no different won't even notice. It's always so special to receive something hand made and that's made with love too.

    Great Job!

    Lol! My grandmother was Scottish, and I think I've picked up a lot of little things that I don't even notice! I don't think I've ever said "mom"... I'm almost 27 years old and I stil call my mother "mum" or "mummy"... I know, it's pretty childish, but whatever. I still refer to potatos as "spuds" or "taters", and I haven't ever heard someone use those words around here... :)

    And I'm not sure where NOOB comes from, it's short for "newbie", but where if comes from, I'm not sure!
