Done in time for the Fair

I've been poking along on these blue and white blocks that I started with Randy's Sow- Along in 2012.  I had them in mind for a quilt for my son and his wife as a wedding present (they were married last April).
 PVQA's  Fair is always a time for me to sit down and figure out what projects Really need finishing.  Since Sam and Meg's  1st aniversary is coming up I thought now would be a good time to put on some steam and get the blue and white quilt finished!
  The setting is kind of a composite of several Historical quilts.  I wanted to do a border kind of like Jane Stickley's quilt only not pieced (good lord that would take me Forever).  Since my blocks are 6" the triangle units are  larger too.  I looked at pix from the Quilt Index and found a lot of examples of this kind of border, mostly mid 1800's.
The last turn of the frame!  You can see what a terrific mess my sewing room is!  But the quilt got done just in time for the Fair which is this weekend!
I helped with set-up yesterday and it looks like an excellent show!  I will post pix on Monday after the dust has settled! 
Have a great weekend!
Cheers, Claire W.
