Crazy Quilt Progress

This has been such a fun quilt to make!  I am really enjoying the colors as I have been piecing the blocks together.  I chose a nice bright white to show off the colors in this quilt and I love how they pop.  Don't  worry, the bottom right corner of the quilt is not as curvy as it looks in this picture.  It was hanging inward slightly creating a nice wavy looking outside edge :)
 I will use the same white as the sashing to create a border for this quilt as well.  I think it will be a nice solid frame since there is so much going on in this quilt.  I have not yet decided what I will bind this with.  It will have to be a surprise for everyone.  I do not have a design wall in this room so I improvised and pinned the corners to the back of two computer chairs to take a picture.  Who says computer chairs are not versatile?!?! :)

And where you might ask is this quilt headed?  Well DD2 had a change of heart and it will go for the school fundraiser after all :)

It looks amazing. The white really does provide a great contrast. I've just been thinking about starting a very simple first quilt. I think it is something I'd get great satisfaction from, but it can be a bit intimidating!

Thank you all so very much for your compliments. That is so nice. I am so excited to be able to send this fun quilt to school :)

Deb; The quilt block unfinished started as 8" blocks. The sashing is 1 3/4" and the outside borders are 1 5/8". I wanted the outside borders to be a little wider to accommodate me using a bit wider than a 1/4" to attach the binding to the front. Hope this help :)
