Design Wall Monday and Stash Report: Finished Farmer's Wife blocks!

I finished the last 7 blocks of the Farmer's Wife Quilt, bringing the grand total to 111!  Saturday (which was National Quilting Day, I found out) I finished the blocks and I purchased some Kona solids in "Copenhagen" for the sashing.  My friend Joyce tells me Copenhagen is "That Blue" that you use for 1930's quilts.  I think it fits pretty well, but there's not enough room on my design wall for all the sashing and the blocks.
It's an obstructed view of the design wall, but there they all are.  Will that be the final arrangement?  I'm hoping it's pretty close.  Then I can start cutting more sashing and some white cornerstones and sewing it all together.
