Next on my Scrappy Civil War quilt

Finished up the border finally and now I just need to add something to finish the quilt off. It seems like it needs another burst of the red and grayish tan.....so I think I'll repeat the inner HSTs ...the ones that surround the spools. I won't think I have anymore of that particular red but I'm sure I can find something close. It's 72" sq right now and adding the next border will bring it to about 80" sq. That should be a nice size to end up with.

It is looking so good. Your plans for the final round should work well.

Thank you Karen...I sure hope so. Finding the fabrics is turning out to be harder than I thought. Didn't realize I started the center over 4 years ago! Time to get it done.
