The quilt is fabulous, and clearly was a lot of work. I'm a huge fan of simple, solid, wide borders - it really makes teh viewer focus in on the blocks and frames them beautifully.

What's the finished size of the blocks?
The blocks finish at 6 inches. My borders are really a dark batik, though they show as black. It is meant to have multiple borders, but I decided to skip that part, LOL.

I am so in awe of your tremendous
and labor intensive project. What
an accomplishment. I had a good
laugh when your next words were
Dear Jane........you need a break.
Truly magnificent.

The trip may have been harrowing, but the end result is something you can be very proud of.
