Full House Around the Neighborhood Schnibbles Flimsy Done!

I worked all day (and it was a crazy busy day!) and came home and sewed all night. I really need to get to prepping for next semester's classes, but Kathy was supposed to come over for NYE Mystery sewing (she cancelled again) so that is my excuse for sewing anyway. Smile. First I trimmed up the house blocks.
Then I sewed a checkerboard together like Carrie has in her pillow even though this one is full size. It looks really cute in her pink pillow but I can see that is was just TOO busy for this top.

I decided to do some ripping and make nine patches to surround in white for the corners. I would like to point out that I am a pattern follower and I was largely on my own trying to figure this out since I wanted the full size and not the mini version (the houses match the Schnibbles pattern but I had to figure the rest). This is way out of my element but I am happy I did it.

I am trying to decide if I should add the blue polka dotted sky as a border all around the whole quilt, or just bind it in that to frame it out. I am tickled I got the first Schnibbles done and have something for Ros to quilt for me :)
