I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Now I just have to find the right backing. It's 62x86. Thank you all again.

Lois,
Your quilt is fantastic. The way you have put the blocks together creates so many different designs. Well done. Love the little red border too.

When you see the block layout in Quilter's Cache, it looks ok but , my dear, you have outdone and outshone with your layout. It is amazing. Truly!,,

Very nice, Lois! The blocks look great together.

I'm seeing a black on red print for the backing... :)

Pirate Girl, the block pattern is The Anvil Block from Quilter's Cache (link below). This was one of our lotto blocks, in other words, many different quilters contributed their blocks, a drawing was held, and I won all the blocks. The blocks are 12" finished. The red border is 1.5" finished and the black is 5" finished.

Look up the thread title about 2014 Lotto Blocks and join in on the fun.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Anvil Block

Fantastic layout! I think you win - Quickest Lotto Blocks to Quilt Top. The red border is perfect. To me - I see sailboats on a racecourse~LOL.

That's funny about the sailboats, Marsha. Lots of T-boning potential with all those port and starboard tackers on collision courses. Very clever observation. I loved the idea of putting the yacht club logo on the quilt. I think I will put it on the label. I'm learning how to make labels on the Inkjet printers.

Lois, Excellent!

Does this start something with you making a quilt for the Yacht Club every year? .....something like Beverly and her trail club???

Donna, I took your advice and found a black on red print for the backing at Thousands of Bolts. I hadn't found anything I liked locally that wasn't going to cost me about $55-60. I bought the wide fabric, so I'll have plenty left over, but it's a pretty cool print (I think) that I should be able to use. This is how your stash builds. I hope it's good fabric. I've never purchased from them before, but I thought I'd give them a try. We'll see.

I am fond of Black and white quilts with red and this one turned out fantastic. You did a wonderful job putting together so many different fabrics. Not an easy task to make them all work so well together. Congratulations, you should be proud of a job well done.
