Top is done! This sure went together fast. :D I love it!! I'm so glad you hollered about putting the gold back in. My mil wanted 40 by 20, and this is 43 by 18. I told her I can trim it down if she wants--but I hope she'll take it as is. I like the border that wide.
For quilting--I want to stitch in the ditch around the center squares...and most likely stitch in the ditch the rest--keep it simple.
