Lucky Me!!!!!!

About 3 1/2 years ago I won these 12-12X12 squares.

I forgot to take a picture before I added the borders.

I was at a quilt retreat and we each received a little pile of fabric-already cut- and instructions on how to assemble our square. There were 24 in all, and they had 2 drawings for 12 squares each. The other was fall colors (I think). And I won these! I purchased some awesome fabric for the sashing, but once I had it home, I decided it was a bit too much (dh agreed). I then used blue and black fabric from my stash to border each square, and the fabric I purchased for sashing (thank goodness I purchased extra!) I will use for the back. I'll post pictures of the finished product (hopefully in the near future).

I am going to walk a half marathon in July, I will be collecting donations for a local youth home. I am going to sell chances on this quilt! I sandwiched it tonight. I'm not sure just how I'm going to quilt it yet. Since I'm a beginner I don't want to get too extragavent, but I'd like to (obviously) make it nice. It measures 54X72.

I think I love it!

Yes, that is Minnie's (once again) behind in the bottom left corner!
