Here is my quilt top made from the blocks I received from the Virtual Quilting Bee. It's nice to finally have it assembled!
I thought long and hard how to put these blocks into a quilt top. I couldn't decide what color to use for sashing, so instead, I added a 3" border (3.5" cut) around each block, which made each block 18.5" unfinished. The blocks are HUGE! It was fun to be able to put 12 monster blocks together to make up a substantial quilt top. I much preferred adding borders to each block rather than working with long sashing strips. The colors of the blocks lent themselves well to adding white borders to half of the blocks and red to the other half. The quilt top measures 54" x 72".
Now I have to come up with something for the back. From my stash, of course. :)
I'd like to say thanks to the lovely ladies that sent me such fabulous blocks!
