Here's my quilt top if you missed last week's blog post. It finishes around 50-inch squares because I decided not to add the borders.
Jen has a great blog post on getting your quilt top prepped. Pop over to Jen's blog to get some helpful hints, whether you are going to be quiting on your domestic machine or sending it to a longarmer.
