I'm Ready for the Last Block!

I'm so excited! I just can't hide it! Can you tell I'm singing? This was one of my Charming Girls goals for April and I couldn't be happier that I got it done. The finishing kit for the Designer BOM from The Fat Quarter Shop...it's finished as far as I can finish it until that last block arrives. The skinny blue border isn't sewn yet...I can't do that until the bottom row is sewn on...and then there's one more wide border...but those will go on pretty fast. The pattern was great...all those sashings and stars all went together absolutely perfectly. I can't tell you that it went together quickly, but it sure went together easily...Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for this wonderful quilt. Can't wait for the new one to start.
