The largest block (not counting the central medallion) measures 6" finished. All of the dark blocks measure 3" finished. If you zoom in on this quilt top, you can see how many pieces are in some of these little blocks. I'm really happy with it so far.I am still working on the rest of the blocks for this quilt and got several of those finished.

First Virtual Quilt Retreat
This past weekend my quilt guild ran a "virtual quilt retreat," on our Facebook page, for members of the guild. We worked on various sewing/quilting projects for four days. As we worked, we posted pics of what we were doing. It was fun for a variety of reasons--I got to "go" to a retreat and didn't have to pack up all my stuff, I could sew in my pajamas, I got to see what everyone else was working on, I got to share pics of what I was working on, I could ask questions/opinions of my fellow virtual retreat participants, and I had a little "push" to get some things finished. I'm happy with what I got done. I think the thing I'm most happy to have finished is the addition of the light border to my 365 Challenge quilt. (I still have a couple more borders to go.) It takes a long time to match seams when there are LOTS and LOTS of seams. This top is heavy already because of all the pieces in each block. The finished top will should measure 90" X 90"; I can't imagine how heavy it will be when I get it finished.
