36 Down, 9 to Go - Slab Blocks and Kaleidoscope Quilt Finish

Here is my finished Kaleidoscope Quilt from my leftover Rainbow Quilt Challenge blocks.  It isn't washed yet, so no nice fresh crinkles.  I have recipients in mind.  
P.S.   My couch is leather and quilts slide right off it.  On someone's YouTube video they gave the hint to use the A Clamps from the hardware store to attach to the top and give weight.  A Great Tip!
I've been working on the slab blocks to make 3 quilts.  Two big girl quilts, and on the right side, a big boy quilt.  I've got 36 blocks finished now, only 9 more to go.  


I plan to sew the girls blocks together in a 3 x 5 arrangement, and then to get the quilt to the right size, add a plain border, a pieced border, another small plain border, and a large polka dot border (Minnie Mouse is popular with them right now, and polka dots are cheaper than the actual Disney fabric, I also have polka dot fleece for the backs, one red, and one pink).  For the big boy quilt, baseball is the plan.  I plan on baseball sashing and cornerstones, with a small baseball border, and then a much more colorful large baseball border.   But, being an indecisive sort, the conversation in my mind:  Self - Maybe I should do sashing and cornerstones on all 3.  Self - No, sewing the blocks all together looked nice on the googled pictures.  Self - But what if mine just looks like a mish-mash.  Self -  They are going to be rainbow style, so the colors should give them seperation.  It's hard being indecisive.

What charming Quilts you will have. My favorite is the hedgehog. Your border themes sound just right for the girls and the boy. Keep up the good work!,
