Been a cut up again

I have been working on the quilt for my son's Christmas present. I have all but 20 blocks made. I need enough for two more rows. I am down to cutting just enough pieces to finish the top. Variety at this point is important to finish the row. I sew a few and press a few to make sure I have enough to get the rows done without repeats.
This quilt has 120 9.75 inch blocks in it. He wants it more like a bedspread than a quilt. so it is longer to go over the pillow when the bed is made. I have to piece the backing on the back of the quilt. I have several pieces all in the same color value of a cranberry so it will be pieced to make it big enough. The weather has been beautiful but warm. I think we are in to be fooled over the Winter and have lots of snow. Another reason to get this quilt done for warmth. Chris

You are making good progress on this one. You might even have time to make another before Christmas at this rate.
