Drum roll please .....................................
111 blocks done, all paper pieced.
110 blocks assembled together in a quilt top. (The 111th block will likely go on the back.)
I started in July 2014 and made 3 blocks most weeks - with a bit of a gap over the holidays.
Now, I've got decisions to make. The quilt currently measures 80 by 88 inches. I had originally planned this to be for our bed (queen) which means it needs to be at least 90 by 108 inches.
The 108 dimension means 10 inches of border all the way around the quilt. Of white. I'm not certain I'd like the look. Too much white. And maybe impractical - my girls love to cover visit with me in the evenings and lay all over the bed.
I've insufficient fabric left to do a border from any of the fabrics in the quilt.
So, I need your help -
Border-less (call it done!) or add a small border - maybe 4"?
After holding the quilt for the photo, my DH 'folded' it and handed it back to me. Rolled it into a big ball is more like it!
Deciding on the borders and the backing is my May goal for Another Lovely Year of Finishes. I'll be linking up at Another Lovely Year of Finishes .
