It's In The Mail...

Several folks have asked if I took some photos of the quilt for Tara, my daughter, before I popped it in the mail.

The answer would be yes...The quilt fits on top of a kingsize bed - She has a queen size and wanted it to hang over the size...

This is the entire quilt - you can click on the photos - and you can get a better view of it...
She will have it in time for Christmas - even though I worried about it as I was sewing on the label at 12:45 this afternoon...
Edited by Sara:
There are in this quilt:
672 - 2-1/2 inch squares (including seam allowance)
105 - 4-1/2 inch squares (including seam allowance)
449 - 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch rectangles (including seam allowance)
None of the colored fabric is the same - therefore it is considered a charm quilt.
