Work In Progress (WIP)

If anyone is wondering there are 77 blocks that were generously donated to the "secret" project quilt.  Before I could really start I had to get the rotary cutter and mat out and do some trimming. 
I ended up with these beautiful piles of 10 blocks each:
And then it was time to start arranging the blocks:
My sister has been visiting me for a few days so I put her to work.  This is the result of our efforts. 
 After I dropped her off at the airport I went home and started sewing the blocks together during DWTS commercials!!
The blocks in the first four rows of the quilt are seamed.  You can see the difference in the size of the rows.  This quilt is going to be around 60" x 77".  It may be a little bit larger if I put a border on it.  Does anyone in the secret society involved in this quilt have any comments or suggestions.  If not, I will just continue on.  I must say, it looks really stunning in person.  Each of you has done an amazing job with the blocks!  I may have to make me one of these when I'm through 'cause Lord knows, I have me some scraps and then some!!
