My First Quilt: Part 4

Once I was organized, it was smooth sailing–er, sewing. Progressing horizontally across the quilt, I sewed pairs of blocks together, and then sewed sets of double-blocks together and sew on (sorry, I couldn't resist). This part went pretty quickly. Once that was finished, I sewed the horizontal bars together and le voilĂ !

It's not completely done yet. It needs a border, and a backing, binding, and then it needs to be quilted; but it's been hanging out in this maybe-80%-finished state for a while.

These are the fabrics I had originally picked out for the border and the back.

I'm not quite loving them. They just don't quite seem to fit. And I haven't been a rush to find something else, either.
