On Saturday and Sunday I accomplished quite a bit on Subtle Charm, getting all the blocks into rows and then the rows sewn together. It currently measures 61.5 x 73.5 and still needs borders. The inner border will be 2" finished, and the outer border will be 3.75" finished.

This quilt is certainly living up to its descriptive "Subtle" with the fabrics I chose. It leaves me feeling rather blah! Between my cutting and sewing, there seemed to be a lot of small alignment issues where I had to stretch or ease to get the points lined up, but once quilted and on a bed, I don't think the 'less than perfectly flat' areas will show much. There are a lot of seams making for quite a bit of thickness in areas so I had to manipulate some of those areas too. I'm reserving my full opinion on this piece until I get the borders on...maybe I'll like it better then.
I was planning to use this on our bed, but it's colors fit more with the living room furniture.
