Vacation - Day ???

Remember these? 
My poor little vintage bed sheet orphan blocks? Well, they got organized, started singing songs about tomorrow being sunny, and next thing I knew, POW! They sewed themselves into a quilt top.
Right now it's 58" wide, and about 75" long. A twin size is 54" by 90", so I may put another row at the bottom. Or maybe the bottom and the side. I want it to be big. Big enough to cover you while you're lying (laying?) in a hammock. Doesn't it look like it needs a hammock? I don't have a hammock, but maybe if I make a hammock quilt, a hammock will arrive. 
If you build it...

I am so going garage sale shopping to find sheets to play with. Your top is wonderful!

Woohoo! This is looking so fresh and fun! A hammock will definielty be in order when you've got it done. (Will you be using batting or just backing it?)

Thanks so much! I think a light batting will be nice. Maybe plain cotton? And I have to figure out the back before I can send it off to the quilter. I've already picked a nice daisy pattern!
