Reunion Raffle Quilt Part Four

Layout of blocks
I have been very busy getting this quilt finished.  It was a little tricky laying out the blocks because I did not want any like fabrics to be touching.   I am extremely happy with the way it turned out.  As I was making my blocks I was loving that I had very few points cut off on the triangles, then after I sewed the blocks together I lost many points.  I've been told by a couple people that I've shown this to that I'm being to critical! 

 After the border was on I rushed over to my LQS (local quilt shop) to get some thread and backing fabric, plus I realized I forgot to include binding fabric with my initial purchase of the border fabric. 
Pinning the quilt sandwich
Then I spent the rest of the day pinning the quilt sandwich together.  I took several breaks to make sure my joints stayed kink free!! When I got to the end of my pinning I was out of safety pins and had to scrounge around to find some more in my studio.  I have several stuck in two other quilts waiting to be finished.  This is why you should finish your quilts after pinning them, you may need the pins someplace else!

This has been me the last couple days!!   I have to finish quilting the borders.  Then  tie and hide several thread tails, perfect project to do while watching TV!
