Now I have to figure out what to use for a backing!

Vacation time rework!
Well, the vacation time quilt along was fun, but what I created was an eyesore! That being said, it was really just a matter of lots of busy fabric without any neutrals/plain fabrics to balance. So... Ripped it apart, got a lovely sashing fabric (Rock Candy in charcoal by Mark Hordyszynski for Blank Quilting 2007) and reworked it to separate the blocks. There was some discussion regarding the placement of individual blocks, but I ended up leaving it. The picture below is before I added a 2.5" border in the same fabric. Measurement came out to 64" square. Will be a nice generous quilt and look great on my new quilt ladder that Donnie made me!
