    Hip Not to be Square FINISHED!

    Thanks to all who helped me through the dilemmas while making this king-sized quilt for my best friend and neighbor.

    I will be taking it to her in a couple of weeks and am sooo excited!
    I ended up buying more fabric to have at least 3 of each color. It's SID around all the black, then quilted in the hoop in the open spaces. It could have FMQ'd it in 1/3rd of the time as it took me to hoop and center all those blocks.
