Finished a top!

I've finished piecing the top for my Halloween wall hanging.

Right now it's about 22 inches wide and over 50 inches long. I'm going to trim it down to a rectangle but not soon. It's too hot too handle all that fabric right now and I'm short on sleep and will be for a few days. As it is, I'm not sure I've done it well but I'll figure it out when I'm more alert.

It's so hot here in Texas that biggish projects aren't very appealing right now.  It was uncomfortable under all the fabric when I was piecing the long sashings on. I'm thinking of working on something smaller or turning my [info]blockofthemonth round 4 project into a quilt-as-you-go project. I'd like to get a book on the subject first to decide how to go about it and whether to machine or hand quilt it.
