There are 78 of the border squares and 80 squares for the mosaic blocks. All I can say is, if I can do all of that and still keep going, I must be a true-blue quilter.
I just had to see everything together:
I am one of those people who draws from her stash as she makes things, and so when it came to make the border squares I wondered if I had enough of two fabrics that would work. After making my squares I really doubted my choices. But now I think they will be okay. There will be a border between the quilt top major and the hst border. I can always change my mind if I don't like the outcome.
When I see the prices of quilt kits I sometimes wince, but considering what goes into choosing fabric and the time it takes, they may be a good deal.
I won two charm packs of Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for Moda as part of the Simple Things quilt along. Thank you, Kelly and Carol. I love charm packs and this fabric design is so pretty.

Tomorrow is Christmas QAL Saturday. I am going to work on my Wreath Quilt and the Scatty Stars Quilt, and hope I accomplish lots.
