But finally, my Jubilee top is finished. I took this photo in Miss Main Street's bedroom on a cloudy day; the colors are actually brighter and sharper.
This is a monster quilt - 98 inches square, though it may shrink an inch or so when quilted. Plenty ample for our queen size bed, might even fit a king bed. The long, drawn out last step was adding the borders. I made them per the pattern directions, with a narrow white inner border that matches the sashing, followed by a medium width print border, then a third, wider white border.
For the print border, I used the Fig Tree fabric that had been my original choice. I had used this print to select all the fat quarters I used for the 40 blocks. Here it is off to the left on my design wall with the first 12 blocks.
Here's another shot of the border with some of the blocks.
I have the backing pieced too, and am on my quilter's list for January. Now I get to start something new. What will it be?
