And below is the final size of the petal blocks (7x8), there will be three rows of border stripes that go around this though. I have about 10 blocks left over actually so I think I am going to make pillows out of them. I have to say I am a little intimidated by this quilt. When I lay it out all together it looks huge!! I have about half of the blocks still needing flowers appliqued onto them, and then I will have to wrestle it all together. I have never sewn a quilt this big before and am getting worried about sewing everything together. I know my daughter (she's 6) will love it though no matter what it looks like, so that's the good part I guess.
~By the way thanks for the comments on my last post it really helped me make up my mind on the back stitching!
