Those leftover blocks are now a finished top. For those of you who visited and left comments on my last post (also about this top) I'm sorry for the repetitiveness of this post. I just want to document the finish.
In that post I was still deciding which direction the stripes in the border should go. I chose perpendicular to the edges and like the effect. Each side of the border has three seams. I didn't want to interrupt the rhythm of the stripes so aligned them, which was much easier to do than I expected.
The measurements for this little finish are: 9½" blocks + 1½" sashing + 1" green border + 4½" red border equals a quilt that measures 42½" x 53¼". Though the measurements might add up to to something different, those are the actual measurements.
It's a sweet little top that will be big enough for a baby or the top of a table. It won't be the next quilt in my hoop, though.
