Rectangle Wrangle

I started the blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Rectangle Wrangle back in October, but only made a few and then put them aside while I worked on some other things. I got them back out and finished making the 84 center blocks. I LOVED working on these...each one was so exciting to see how it would turn out! Here the blocks are, all laid out, but not sewn together:
It's wonky because some of the edges on some of the blocks are turning up. They just wouldn't behave and lie flat!! This is a big will measure 86" x 98" when done. Good thing, because it is going to the friend of my daughter Jess. His name is Nick and he's a big guy. He's getting it because he made me this great sculpture:
I just love my bird!! Hope he likes this quilt as much. After I put it together, I still need to add borders. Bonnie used Ohio Stars as her border for this quilt, but I'm not fond of that for this quilt, so will have to come up with something else. I ended up with a LOT of teensy 9 patches to add to my leader and ender quilt making these blocks. The only bad thing is I thought that since it was a big quilt, my scraps would diminish, but they didn't!! How DOES that happen?? I'm getting excited because I have quite a few projects that are nearing completion. I've been working on and off on so many projects that I wasn't getting any finishes, but it looks like they'll all be finishing around the same time!! Yay!!!! Well, off to bed now. Check back in a few days and hopefully I will have this quilt center all sewn together!!!
