I Wish You A Merry QAL – Finished Quilt Top

I’m so proud to present my finished quilt top!  I added basic sashing and a border to my quilt blocks!  Since I designed block 5, I decided to put the block front and center. Whenever there is sashing, having cornerstones will make sure the quilt gets aligned properly. My quilt finishes at 50″x64″.
