Ta Da

Just a quick post to show my Star Bright quilt top all completed. I'm so impressed that I finished this top in under 2 weeks. The top is big enough for a queen size bed but I feel it needs just a little more overhang so I'm going to add a border. Then off it goes to the machine quilters it will go. BTW the inner border strips took me an entire day to get done. 1" finished strips....ahhh...it was so worth it in the end!

Have a good weekend to all.

In other words - I dig it. And the fact that you knocked it out so quick, too. That's got to be a good feeling.
