WTG Missie!  It's not a race and any progress gets you closer to a finished quilt.

I've made 35 blocks and will stop there.  I plan on making a large size lapquilt using 5 blocks across and 7 blocks down.  I had to order more turquoise fabric for the sashing, border and binding.  I found some on eBay for a pretty good price.  

I will keep my blocks on my design wall to inspire me to get it to a finished quilt top.  If I take them down and put them into a storage bag, they will soon become a UFO....

Wendy, that is so beautiful!  I just love the scrappy look and I think you accomplished the blending of all of these fabrics fabulously!  Congratulations on this awesome finish.

Finished the top. I only used 18 blocks. 50 x 64 so a good lapsize. I used the sashing as a border. My sashing is 1/2" wide. I have the rest ready to assemble...someday....maybe. Picture is sideways.

Thanks Sharon. Marian, no not really a ribbon I don’t think. The border blocks were supposed to be used as the sashing but I didn’t care for the look.

Thank you for all the compiments. I do like this quilt it is now one of my favorite MQs.

Judy I  like your quilt. I thought about using my sashing pieces in a border like yours, but I didn't want left overs just sitting around, so I elected to to the bigger chevron boarder with mine.
