X Marks the Spot!

I've been working on this quilt for what seems like forever.  
While they don't seem like difficult blocks to make the time consuming 
part was cutting the small westie blocks and pressing the 'x' block seams open flat.
 My buddies keeping me company while I sew.
 The inspector [as usual] checking out my work.
 This quilt is already bigger and more bulky than I'm use to doing
 and I still need to add a border or two to say it's complete.
I have to say I don't like the blue fabric for the border.
So for the border I picked a fabric that came very close in
color red in the tiny paw prints on the blue 'x' fabric.  
For the back fabric ... I'll be looking for wider fabric on my
 shopping trip next week with my sister ... and if you haven't
guessed already I know exactly what store has the best 
selections of wide fabric.  Countdown to Lancaster!
