I took those 16 blocks, sliced them in half, put dark purple as the other half, made some HUGE HSTs with them and set 30 of them 5 x 6 for the quilt. Took at last block and cut the triangles in half again and made those the corners of the borders, which were more of the purple fabric.
Then I sandwiched it and it sat in my living room for 2 weeks.
Tonight I quilted it. One set of quilting on the diagonal. Another for the vertical lines and lastly for the horizontal lines. It took 2 hours and killed 2 spools of purple thread. (I buy garage sale thread and use it up this way.)
I'm so excited!
