Star Surround Quilt Along Parade
It's time for the Star Surround Quilt Along Parade, and I'm bummed that my quilts are not done. I knew Batman's quilt wouldn't be completed since Mom is hand quilting it, but I had high hopes for my big one-block quilt. Part of me was tempted to hurry up and finish so I could join the crowd - especially after I was so good every week at keeping up with the steps - but I love the way the quilting is turning out, and that means more to me than being done on a deadline.
Having said that, there are two dozen other people who did get their projects quilted and bound, and their quilts are just spectacular! I am so impressed and in love with the different sizes/colorways/projects.
Be sure to check out the finished quilts and the 99 quilters who completed a top.
Many thanks to Melissa at Happy Quilting for this awesome quilt along and fun design. I had a blast and will be keeping an eye out for the next one!
