Black and White and Flowers All Over

I have been making these blocks all day long.  It's been a dreary day outside but the fabrics are bright and pretty.  The blocks go together quickly and I really like how they are coming together.  The colors in this picture are pretty close to the actual blocks which are just laid out on the bed.  Trying to decide on how many to make of the 8 x 10 blocks.  It all depends on if I put a border on or not.  I bought more of the wiggly dotted line fabric but don't know if it will be enough to make borders.  May make enough blocks for 8 rows of  10 blocks for a top that is 80 x 80.  That would nicely cover a double bed if you used a bedskirt.
I'm leaning toward not putting a border on the quilt and to bind it in the squiggly fabric.  (Click to enlarge)

Oh, I really, really like this. I would not put a boarder on it, I like it with all of the blocks If you do add a boarder I think that I would make it narrow. It is very pretty, and you all the way. The grand daughters will fight over this one. Wouldn't that pattern be perfect with animal prints and a cute focus fabric. I think you will do more of this pattern, you are certainly creative enough!
