Quilt Top finished

I finished the quilt top last night!  I do still need to add the applique today.   I hope it turns out the way I want it to.
I decided to do a tan inner border and save the red for the applique and the binding.  I did a five inch border.  I was not sure I had enough material (I did in hindsight), so I made cornerstones.  My first time to make cornerstones, and I am glad I made them.  I was originally going to make shoofly blocks but liked the way they looked when the pieces were turned.
They are only five inches unfinished, the smallest blocks I've made.

I hope the applique turns out today, I hope to get the quilt basted this evening.

Do you see Cupcake behind the quilt?

I think I made the throw big enough!  LOL
My helpers:

Have a great weekend ya'll!
