I did it! I sewed! Unfortunately, this quilt is a bit wonky... too many triangles? too much crinkling and stuffing into the corner so I won't have to look at it? LOL In any case, it's a top now! Right at 5 feet square, which isn't huge, but my sister is wanting it for a lap quilt, so it's a decent size for that use.
Either way, I'm confident that a good pressing and the quilting process will work those kinks right out!
