30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 28 and a Quilt Top

You've made it to quilt block number 28 of 30!
We are almost to the finish line of the 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Challenge.

This is the 4th quilt top I have made so far with the blocks.
It's 60" x 60" with  a grid of 4 blocks by 4 blocks and two 5" finished borders.

I'm afraid I won't be receiving any quilt photography awards today.
The wind just doesn't seem to cooperate with me and quilt tops.  



And here is another inside picture of the top.




Let's get started on block #28

It is great and looks so different from block to quilt.

Neat design - I really like the subtle squares you've got going on there with your selection of fabric. Cool!
