Chopped Jelly Roll Race Finished

The chopped jelly roll race lap quilt is finished. I got all of the strips sewn together end to end in about an hour last night, The total length was about 1,500". Then finished the remainder of the sewing tonight in about an hour. I used a 3/8th" seam allowance for the remaining steps as i wanted the quilt to finish less than the usual 64" long. It finished at about 45" by 55".
Backing and quilting on the agenda for tomorrow night then attaching the binding on Friday and hand sewing the binding to the back on Saturday.
Not knowing how it would look until it was finished was a bit scary but I think it turned out okay.
