Around the World top done!

I worked on the Around the World quilt some more and finished the quilt top.

When it was just finished:

And then with the sashing and border:

A close-up of the sashing and border:

The quilting pattern is a cross-hatch across the entire quilt.  I'm currently drawing in the lines with a water soluble marker.  I know some people skip this step, but since I'm still new to machine quilting, it's a good support.

As usual, the quilt is much larger than expected.  It is currently 45" X 57".  How does it always get so big?
