    I did it! I finished up the top of the quilt. (you experts out there, don't look too closely!!!!) Now I just need to decide on the binding and borders....I know I will be using one fabric that looks like grass (to resemble turf) and another that is a small football print. I have to pack it away for the weekend now that the little one is home for the next 3 days. I really hope to keep it a surprise.

    Thank you to all of you who lended your support and gave me encouragement!!!

    It looks wonderful!!! Great job. Did you end up trimming the extra little bit off one side?

    Yes, I figured that was the least painful thing to do. I trimmed 1/4 inch of the "long" side and so far everything seems to be fitting. I guess I'll just adjust the borders to make it fit. I'm hoping it will fit his twin bed.

    It looks great and turned out really good. Measure the bed and just add boarders and don't forget to add your seam allowance for each boarder.

    Can't wait to see it done.

    Awesome!!! You did a great job!!! DS is going to love it :D:D:D
    If you need to build up borders to make it twin size, maybe use some more of the NFL fabrics in one of them? You could make it a wider border alternating them with another fabric.

    Looks great! You can always add 2-3 borders to increase the size if you need to. Treat it like a picture that needs matted/framing. It helps me to visualize mine that way. I usually go for a narrow inner border, and wider outer border. If you need a third, go by size smaller to larger. Don't forget to post pics when it's done!

    Thanks everyone! I have to admit, I'm quite proud. I was dreading it because I thought it was going to look awful, but it's just not too bad :)

    Very nice. I'm glad you put the Detroit Lions fabric at the bottom, where they belong. :thumbup:
