Design Wall Flaw

Well, well, well, it seems there is a flaw in the design wall. The hall is not wide enough to get a picture of a full quilt. Durn it, had to move that trunk and vacuum the floor so I could take the pic. But glory, glory glory!!! I got the flimsy done of this Blue Ridge Beauty from I am in love with the whole idea Bonnie Hunter has come up with. This quilt is made up of 1120 2" squares made into 4 patches and 280 HST. It doesn't seem like that many, though because you do them as leaders and enders as you are making other things. I can't wait to border, sandwich, and quilt this. I think I am keeping it. My hubby really likes it. Every time he would go down the hall he would stop and say "I just don't see how that happens." I started with enough rows to make the first two diamond patterns and kept building from there. Once he said "You could just keep adding forever, couldn't you?" This is totally scrappy and all from stash. Gonna border it is dark blue marbled fabric. So far I am really pleased with this. There is one place where I have 2 of the same fabric together...can you find it?

This is a real stunner - congrats!
Thanks for your comment on my blog and my stash-busting challenge. Would love to have some company along to encourage me on the journey :)

Your BRB is indeed a beauty! And your DH is right--you can keep adding rings forever.
