Fabric for a Quilt Using Janice's Cross-Stitched Blocks

Not long before she passed away, Janice, my sister-in-law, gave me 23 sixteen-inch blocks she had cross-stitched.

I designed this quilt in EQ7; it measures 100" x 124":

This afternoon, I went to Hobby Lobby and to our local quilt shop, Sew What, and bought the fabric:

Now I'm ironing the cross-stitched blocks, and next I'll make sure they're all square and exactly the same size.  I'm thinking I will give this quilt to my brother.  He's quite sentimental about the things Janice made.
