Scrappy Disappearing Nine Patch: Progress

I am still dilegently working away on this scrappy disappearing nine patch. Somehow, I manage to sew a couple blocks the wrong way together so they aren't matching up right. Seam ripper, here I come! I did ponder if anyone would notice, but I would notice, so I should do it right. I have three rows that are completely finished. I need to finish the two half rows that you can see, and I think I will need to add at least one more row to the width. It is slow going, but I really like how colorful it is right now. It will be great as an I-spy quilt because there are so many novelty fabrics from cupcakes and fish to beach sandals.

Amazing1 How big are you going for?

That should keep a kidlet occupied for a very long time, looking at all the little figures and objects to be found!

I have so enjoyed watching the progress on this quilt. I didn't realize it was going to be so big. Perhaps it's my perspective, but it's looking like a King-Sized quilt!!!

I love how the colors are all working together! Looking good.

Thanks everyone! Currently, from the perspective of the picture it is 66" in height and about 88" in width. I would like it to be a full size-78"x87" or 83"x106" depending on what you consider a full. I am going to just lay it out on my bed and see what looks right!:)
