Another Quilt Bordered

This is the second Barb's Barn Quilt.   It is bigger than the first one and the background colors are darker.  I also used one less fabric per block.  I made the center the same as the other solid patches.

The good news is that I used fabric I already had for the borders.  I also made the binding from the same blue fabric.  And  I sewed the backing - I used some blocks that I won in a holiday block party at Capital Quilters in Raleigh in 2005  to increase the width. ( I remember using some of the same blocks in another quilt somewhere along the way).  Neglected to get a picture of them. 

  I think the final measurement will be about 84" square. (A little too large for my design floor space.)  Another top for the Quilting Queue!

I have so many quilts in my "to be made" queue what difference does one more make.
How did we get bee day wrong"??? I could have sworn some of the chatter on email misled me. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Off to retreat with Mary's crowd tomorrow until thursday. Hope I have plenty to do!!!
Love you
