I started this quilt as a practice of enlarging quilt block patterns to see if I could do it correctly, and it the technique I was using worked o.k; needless to say, I need more practice, but most turned out o.k., and since the blocks were all different patterns, they were not exactly the same size, but only off about 1/4 of an inch, so all things considered, I think it went as expected. It was definitely an experience and often a challenge; now to get it quilted...Charisma, can you handle another one right now?

That's a True American Beauty!!

Nice how you have done your attic window effect red/blue border on each block.
