YIPEEEEEE!

The Scrappy Star quilt is finally pieced. whew...there are a kazillion pieces in this baby. Well maybe not a kazillion but probably a bazillion :-) ! I really like it and it's big enough to go on our bed - 108 X 86.
After finishing that I was still a bit inspired (must have been that dusting thing that happened the last post) and I decided to start on the Fat Quarter Shop 2009 Designer BOM. This block went together really nice, and again the pattern is wonderful. I was pretty much seeing stars all day.
Lots planned for this weekend. Some sewing time tomorrow with friends and then Sunday a getaway to the beach for a bit of time, and just in the nick of time since it is suppose to be in the 90's!
Ok, I'm off to have some root beer float ice cream...have you tried it??? It's by Dryer's and it's limited edition......yumo!!! Happy weekend everybodeeeee!

I have enjoyed watching the Scrappy Star quilt come together - it is beautiful and worth all the time you've put into it.
The first block of the BOM is lovely - I can't wait to see the next month's block.
