DQS10 Complete!

There must be some kind of disruption in the Space - Time continuum because I, President of the Last Minute Club, have finished my DQS10 quilt and have it all set to mail - self-serve postage label affixed, even!! - TWO DAYS before the deadline.

I'm so very, very pleased with how this turned out.

Here's my process. I had envisioned a sampler in the ROYGBV progression:
DQS10 Sketch #1

Then I pulled fabrics:

You'll notice I didn't use all of them, nor did I follow my original plan of using some black/white fabrics.

Then I began piecing blocks:
DQS10 progress

I decided on a final arrangement - with a surprise centre block - and asked for feedback on the sashing, thinking only of the blue option.
DQS10 no sashing - need advice please!DQS10 with sashing - need advice please!

I got some GREAT advice and chose the Kona Medium Grey for a very skinny sashing (thank you Sonja for the great photo!!):

Quilted it all up. I used my walking foot and just used the seams as my guide. I marked the green block only so that I could follow those curves. Here it is, front:
