I made my 12 blocks. Laid them out:Then I added 8.5" squares between (I sewed these in diagonal rows, this is just how it looks laid out):Then I added the 8.5" triangles to the sides and corners:And now my quilt is finished! Although I am thinking of adding a border. I'm going to try backing it in flannel for some extra-coziness. And I haven't yet decided how I am going to quilt it...but for the most part, it's done!
