Hard to see on my brown flannel board, but the outside is a 5 1/2" black piece. I literally used every lime, turquoise, and purple scrap that I had in order to piece the middle border. It's big, 102" x 102", and it will go on the longarm just as soon as it is fixed. H got another part today, hopefully this one does the trick and I'm back on the machine.
On the other hand, I'm still hand quilting on the tropical flowers.
I need another project, string star or more appliqué? And I have a basket going too. More about that later.
