    Here's what I came up with. The quilt top measures 46 x 68--a nice size. It called for one more row--but I thought that would make it too long. It didn't need that row to complete the design--it kind of made it incomplete. I added it on the Sunflower one, but thought then it was a tad long. I'll add the Sunflower picture too.

    Edited to add: The strips in the Sunflower one follow the directions- 1.75 in strips-with 6.75 in squares. The Sunny Day strips are 1.5 and the squares are 5.5. I like the smaller size better. :-)

    This makes three tops done to take to the quilters. :roll:

    Woohooo!!! Good job! :) It's beautiful and the rust frames the quilt center nicely. :)

    I really like them both. But I'd have to go with the measurements for the Sunflower one. I'd never get the 1.745 consistently. I'm assuming that's a scant 1 3/4? I don't think I have a ruler that's marked off that way :)
    Very nicely done.

    :lol: bj-- :lol: That was a typo!! If I ever saw a measurement like that, I'd turn the page. It did make for a great math lesson for my 5th graders. :D

    colours are so right... well done.... now the binding I would use would be the same green material you have just put on last... see how the centre just pops out !!! Any more colours on it would be overdone.. !!! Plain or cloudy borders are the best...
