My quilt guild came over on Wednesday and helped me baste it. I am one lucky quilter to have friends like this to help out! The quilt is a generous queen size at approximately 90 x 100 inches-- a daunting task to take on myself (my hamstrings hurt just thinking about it) but with 5 of us there it was a fast and easy job.
I quilted it with a neutral gray thread with a simple meandering stitch.
Anyway, let me get the binding finished and then I'll take more (and better) pictures of this (almost) finished project!

I believe she said there were 664 blocks in this quilt.
She's planning to machine quilt it.
And, in case we weren't overwhelmed enough with that one, she also had this top to show, this one in autumn colors:
