My top is complete! It is actually basted and ready to quilt at this point. Here is a picture:
I think it actually turned out pretty well! My failed plan was to add flannel as backing. Well, the flannel was 42.5" wide and this quilt is 43.5" x 43.5". So it will have cotton backing which thankfully was 44" wide. I just hope that my quilting works out. The hope is to do diagonals.
