Contest quilt top finished

I finished sewing all of the top together that uses all of my blocks from the Modern Quilts block design contest.   Next step is to get it layered and pin-basted so that I can quilt it.   It has to be totally finished before Nov.14th and a pic uploaded by the 15th for the final contest.  Voting will run the 16th through 30th of November.   Even with the coming travels, that is a doable time line.

This won't be the final shape, but I will quilt it like this before trimming the corners back.  I plan on binding it in the same fabric as the background and sashing.

Final size of the top is 45" wide by 58" long.   All good 'cause the rules said it had to be 60" by 60" or smaller.  =)

Now to think about how I want to quilt it for a few days while I get some other projects caught up and done.

Gratitudes:

1. The edema in my feet and legs is much better after my walk around the neighborhood yesterday evening....now to find a way to deal with the aggravation that the heat causes the ezcema!

2. Storage room door has a new door handle/lock on it and has been rekeyed.   I can now put all the stuff in it that I need to get out of the downstairs!  Woohoo.....

Yay on the storage room door! Super good news. The quilt top looks great. I know you will come up with the perfect quilting idea for it, too. What coming travels?
