Completed top for the Take the Leap Challenge. I will sandwich it tonight and hopefully start to quilt it tomorrow. I was a bit unsure about it until I put the borders on but they have made a big difference. It is going to Clare at Dordogne Quilter for a leukaemia charity. Since the fabric for the borders for the blue scrappy top still hasn't arrived I should get it finished posted by the end of the week. I've enjoyed working on a small, quick to finish project this week. With any luck I'll be able to send Clare a couple of red and white squares too.

The sashing and borders finish it off beautifully. I can't wait to see it quilted.

Spectacular! love the colors and I love how you have to look at the Xs and Os for a second to figure out what they are. The sashing looks great!
