Just lack the borders! It'll be queen-size. It may be tonight before I get the top completely finished. I be exhausted!

Can't wait to see your quilt top. I'm having a hard time putting my blocks together with the different sizes. (having never done this before) I'm still making extra blocks. Would love to see how you did yours.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the blocks I got, they are all so very nice and a good variety. I know I am a little late on posting seeing as I got my blocks Monday, but better late than never

Some quick pics! The lighting's not the best since it's early in the morning. I'll try to get the borders done tonight. I'm planning to put a thin white border, then a thin pink floral border.

As far as putting the blocks together, I just sewed the smaller ones together and added to them as needed to make them all 12-1/2". DH and I both did the maximum number of sets, so we could get enough to make a larger quilt.

The first pic is the whole quilt (minus the pending borders, of course).
The second pic is half the quilt, closer up.
The third pic is the other half of the quilt, closer up.
And the fourth and fifth pics are the two top corners that didn't show up well. DH's arms weren't quite long enough to hold the quilt out straight.
