Finished yesterday afternoon at Silver Creek Cabin. Got all the ends hemmed in. I'm not sure if I really like the finished results, wish I had had more time to make the bottom blocks longer. Oh well, it's finished. If they don't like it, it's always good for that couch throw or the guest room. the wedding is today.
I did an I-cord border instead of what they recommended in the book.
I also did not bind off my stitches, I kept them all "live" on holders or long circus. This saved a bit of time and also made it easier to "pick up" stitches for the I-cord border.
