I'm am officially hooked on doing this pattern! This was so much fun to do and a learning experience! I used the original fabric along the outside for the border. It measures about 51 1/2 x 61 1/2 inches. Now all I need to do is get some batting and backing and finish it completely!
If any of you are thinking about trying it just get the book One Block Wonders by Maxine Rosenthal. It is so easy to follow and the instructions are great!
