Default Dream Big One Block Wonder

I've finished putting the top together for my Dream Big One Block Wonder (my first OBW). I cut the panel strips at 3 3/4". The quilt is 110" x 104" and is intended for our king bed. I plan to try to quilt it on my DSM. I've done 3 queens on that and I figure it's only a little bit bigger [img]images/smilies/wink.png[/img]. I used strips from the 7th panel in the border and then cut some small hexies from what I had left and placed them in the border as well. They aren't not sewn on yet and I'd love to hear your opinions on if I should leave them or take them off. Thanks for looking!

I have used that panel several times and I love it, but it would never have occurred to me to use it for a One Block Wonder. But yours is gorgeous! The hexagons are subtle but flow together beautifully.
