YAY! I met my goal...

I am so happy!
I finished the quilt top!
It measures about 58" square right now.

Will add a 4" border all around.

(okay, so technically, it's not done...the border will be the
same fabric as the backing/binding, which I don't have, yet.)

The fabric should arrive Tuesday.

So, will add the border,
and start to baste/quilt/bind it.

My plan is to take it to Geri on September 8th or 9th.
Luckily, I have a 3-day weekend between now & then,
so I am not feeling any pressure.

The fabric I used for the sashing is not
a solid as it looks in this photo.
I'll show a closer-up with the next photos I post.

These fabrics are so similar in value,
which means that there isn't a lot of contrast.
So, I thought that the best way to show them off
was to go with large/small prints in each block.

Awesome job meeting the goal. Great quilt top. That was a good idea to pair the large / small prints in each block.
