Each block finished with the 4 borders finishes up to be 16-1/2 X 18-1/2 so with making 9 blocks for the front, this will make a nice size top. I'm not making it for anyone in particular right now but my daughter Sarah just loves their striped stockings so you never know...Sarah might just be the recipient of this one in the end.
Now to get moving on the other 8 blocks....

I absolutely love that chinese coins pattern!!
I unfortunately, did not have enough of either of the fabrics I wanted to use for the final border so I cut the strips and connected them and came up with a half and half kinda border. What do you think? I like it personally.....the whole top is scrappy so why shouldn't the border kinda be scrappy too? Now to go to the quilt shop and get a backing for it so I can get this one quilted lickety split.....
Now....what should I work on????
