Another one done

Another one done, but terrible picture to show it off - I don't have a large enough space to hang up these king size quilts and my rooms aren't big enough to spread them on the floor and still be in the room to take the picture.
I debated adding a solid border outside the pieced one but finally just let it be.  It's interesting, to say the least, but I'm afraid it looks a bit unfinished.  Perhaps the green binding will give it some design closure.  I should have used the darker tan on all four edges but that would have meant making new X blocks for those edges with beige on one side and tan on three sides (instead of beige on two and tan on two), and I was running short of green and beige fabric. And picking out the end blocks on all eleven assembled rows, which I wasn't going to do.  It stands as it is.

And I finally got my Grandmother's Choice block for this week completed.  Foundation paper piecing, templates for cutting, curved piecing and applique.  She covered the bases on this one!

The crook in the handle should have been turned upward but I was working in mirror image and forgot to reverse it.  Don't tell!

It looks great! I love the setting you chose and yes, the binding will finish it off nicely. This did turn out to be a big quilt. Your block looks good too. I haven't done this one yet and I'm not sure I want to. I like the colors you used on this one..
