On Ringo Lake - The Project Continues

 I've been working diligently towards finishing my version of On Ringo Lake by Bonnie Hunter.
Before I left for Iowa, I had one half of the top pieced.  I took it all down and cleaned it up before I left.
This past week (plus some) I've been working on getting the other half pieced.
By the end of last Sunday things looked like this.  Two halves, with one more row of sashing to piece.
Except that I ran out of pieces!  I had to go all the way back to clue #3 and make a few more.

Now I've got the top together and I'm working on figuring out borders.  This started with cutting another 200 triangles, but what's another 200 triangles when I've come so far?

 Its much too large for the design wall curtain, so I've been doing layouts on the floor.
 Helper cat.  Normally she's not out much, but I guess she couldn't resist.
This is sort of the plan.  The hardest part is figuring out to make it fit.  Then I will need to decide on a probably final border.  Hopefully a finished top by the end of the week.

I absolutely love your version! I really like your pieced aqua setting triangles instead of the two pieced ones in the original. What a beautiful quilt!

It looks really nice.

Gooooooo, you!!! You are making tremendous progress! I love the aqua triangles you pieced in the setting blocks. I just quilted mine this weekend and I can't wait to have it finished. I went a much simpler route to extend it and made orange/coral/yellow 'bricks' of 5" x 7". My final size is 85 x 100
