Oh, yeah, the quilt

With all the excitement of the election yesterday I totally forgot to post a pic of my finished quilt top. So here it is along with the top of hubby's head.

It is 79x96, made from scraps with the exception of 4 yards of fabric - 4 fat quarters bought for the snail's trail quilt and used in this one too, 1/2 yard for the inner border, and 2 1/2 yards for the outer border. The inner border is a bold green and the outer is actually bluish-purple. Not the best pic but I did it in a hurry a few minutes ago.

and a close up (the two little yellow dots are pins - don't you just want to take them off?)

I'm happy with it. :)
