What was I thinking????? The finished top(without borders) is 90 X 108". From this view, you can sort of see what I was thinking by keeping that last odd 4th triangle a light instead of the traditional dark. They make a sort of pinwheel where the blocks come together. It doesn't do that if the last triangle is dark. Posted by Picasa

My goodness that's a big quilt! Please tell us you're machine quilting it! :)

It's amazing how the colours you've chosen create a diamond in the middle. It's one of those now you see it now you don't affairs. It's a great lesson in how to use light/darks effectively.

I'm still getting over how big this sucker is! (we have metric in Australia and it took me a few moments of mental arithmetic to sort it out!)
