Neon overload

This week I managed to finish my Neon pink quilt top…finally.

neon quilt topI must admit I procrastinated lots and lots about how to get the different sized blocks to work.  Finally two of my fellow PMQG partners in crime suggested the same solution… border the blocks with white and then cut them down to the same size.  Michelle and Kimberly’s genius idea saved my head from exploding from a math over exertion.
