A Quilted Christmas block swap top almost done!

I am almost done putting together the top for Marie Bostwick's "A Quilted Christmas" block swap. I was going to wait until I had it all completed, but then saw Shellie's and decided if she could put hers up without the final border, so could I! lol I LOVE Shellie's done with the white background. I went the opposite and used a dark red print, but only because I am planning on filling in with a lot of folk artsy stuff and I think the dark will highlight those. As I get those added on, I will keep updating pics of the top. This is a BIG is 84" x 84" now, so will finish up at 92 x92 when I am done. Just perfect for a family snuggle! So, here is my version (so far!!)

Thanks, ladies and new friends, for all these wonderful blocks!!
