Now my job is to piece together a backing that is at least 95 in. by 85 in., to set aside enough medium blue fabric to do a self-binding, and to baste the top and the backing together with a lovely organic cotton batting I purchased at Jo Ann's today. With luck I'll even have enough blue fabric over to make pillow slips. Here's hoping!
I'm high as a kite from finishing the top of my scrappy four-patch quilt about forty-five minutes ago. It took that long to spread it out on the floor and chase the cats off so I could photograph it for you. You'll notice that the navy blue border I'd had my heart set on was replaced by a subtle medium blue print from my stash -- thus saving me the need to buy any new fabric and, I think, coordinating well with more of the greeny-blue blocks that show up all over the quilt.
