Down the Road Finished!

We're having a sunny windy day but I managed to get G and C outside to hold my finished quilt top so I could take a picture! This is my 2nd quilt top and the first one to have borders. I actually enjoyed them! I'm much happier with this one (it looks a little wonky but it's not). My Ravelry friends from the Quilters Knitting group said that big blocks are more difficult than small ones and I believe them! They also gave me some excellent tips that I was able to apply from the beginning of this process. Every single tip was valuable. Thank you all!
