Snapshots top complete?

I thought I had the Snapshots top pieced. I measured it and it is 46 X 63. What!? I don't think that is big enough for a QOV. I got the book out and read the instructions again. Yes it says it is 5 blocks by 7 and my blocks are 9" and it is suppose to finish at 57 X75. So where did I go wrong. Oh, I see now I still need to add the borders. Looks like a shopping trip is my near future. What color should I use for the border? Solid? Or a print?

Oh what did you pic? I think I might choose a Navy or a red solid - but many say I am fabric challenged - lime green is my favorite color.

Very nice quilt top so far!

I don't know how I missed that you started a blog! So glad you posted a comment on mine today so that I could find yours! I love your Carolina Crossroads quilt - it's one of the best that I've seen so far.

Great quilt project. Love all the fun colors and the pattern is wonderful.

I think I would go with a solid since you have a lot of prints in there already. But whatever you choose will look great!

So pretty. I love this pattern. I'm working on one right now in pink! Have you decided on the border?
