Final step everyone.   Now we will get to see all those beautiful quilts.   I will be away from the computer during the day Friday but will check in tomorrow night and try to help anyone that is having problems.

Looks like we are going to have a fun ending to this MQ. Good luck to all.  I think I will have to add an extra border to make it bigger. I don't think extra blocks will help me. I needed to go shopping anyway.

just took a quick look at step 6.  It looks complicated.  But will print it off tomorrow and study it.   Still have 12 blocks to go before I start on it.

Very Nice, Nana, Thanks! - I knew it had to be on point but was not sure about the pieces I had left over.  So glad it makes sense now.  I guess I will have to get it together and then decide on the border.  The jury is definitely still out.

Nana, I love it!  my only problem is visualizing it with reversed dark and light.  will have to get it altogether before I can choose border fabric. glad I waited to buy fabric.  You did a great job and it does look like busy city streets.

Anyone else up and sewing? It's 1:19 am here on the West coast. For various reasons I just couldn't sleep. I wandered into my sewing room and played around with the borders. I finally came up with something I really like, without buying more fabric! I'm almost done sewing the rows together and will do the sashing strips next.

Who knows when I'll go back to bed, but I have to be up by 6:30 for an appointment and then a busy day ahead. Maybe a glass of milk?


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Nana it is beautiful.  I was hoping it would work out so that I could use it for roman blinds in my dining room.  I have 2 smaller windows and I think if I may be able to do it if I make a few more blocks.  Thanks again Nana it is great and had a fun and sometimes frustrating time putting all those little peices together.

Judy - yep, been up all night and almost done, have the 4th row to do and then sew it to 5 & 6 and then to the top half.  I like to make it in halves and sew the halves together.  Not so much fabric to work with.  here's what it looks like now

All you night owls have been busy.  I just got online for a few seconds and was surprised to see Debbie with hers nearly done!  I guessed the layout and block size when we were cutting fabrics.  I almost laid out my first 9 finished blocks with sashings, cornerstones and filler triangles yesterday, but had too many other things to do.  Therapy first this morning, then grocery shopping, then - - - hopefully I can sew strips of remaining blocks together and start adding sashing . 

Rich started car a few minutes ago so the ice would melt on the windshield so I could see to drive!  Also, the car will be warm!!!  Where has this kindness come from!  Be home in about 3 1/2 hours, then on to the sewing machine!  Have fun - - - I will be catching up soon.
