Here it is below (top left, after I fixed it) with the other 3 blocks. They measure 7 1/2 inches.

I had a piece of that large scale print and I made the one on the bottom first and then when I got to the borders on the second one I thought if I used something else I could have enough of the large print to make 2 more. I think I like the one on the top best. I am one of those people thinks there is no such thing as too many fabrics in a quilt. I am not sure if this was something I bought or something one of my lovely friends gave me when I asked for leftover pieces and strings for our stockings last year. I seem to remember making place mats with it for a shower gift for one of my nephews and his wife. I like to include something to use at Christmas in my wedding shower gifts.

I am quilting in the ditch along most of the straight lines with concentric circles in the center of the WOF blocks and 3 overlapping circles in the rectangles in the center of the sashing. I realized a couple of years ago that it is like sewing every single seam a second time and then some.
I started out quilting in my Q-Snap PVC pipe frame but that is not very accessible right now having been put in our locker with a bunch of things blocking it. I will get it out when we take our Christmas things out next month. In the meantime I have set up my oval floor frame which is smaller but it is working well; the quilt is all over the floor at this point but that is not a big problem.
I told my daughter in law and son that they could have this quilt when it is done so I really would like to be able to give it to them.
