I really enjoyed pairing up fabrics for the blocks... it's all about color for me.
Here it is on the floor with green print triangles to finish off and square the edges. I like how the green looks with the blocks. I am considering a dark red binding.
I am machine quilting it in sections so I don't have to struggle with quilting such a big piece at once. I have four square center sections of nine blocks each and four triangular corner sections. I am working on quilting the third of the center sections now.
Even though the blocks are pretty simple, it takes quite a bit of time to make something 86 inches square.
