Finished Layer Cake Quilt & Draw Winner

This is my finished Layer Cake Quilt Along top and I'm very happy with the result.

I started to rip out the cornerstones to put the stars into the sashing, but that got old very fast! I inserted 2 stars on the inside blocks and had enough of that!
Then I put the stars into the outside corners and added a colourful border fabric that was leftover from the backing of a quilt I made years ago....it was the perfect width and length for the border!

Thanks to Konda at Moose on the Porch Quilts for this fun mystery quilt!

I almost forgot to announce the winner of the Easter draw for my bowtie mini quilt.  I asked my daughter to pick the winning number from the 22 comments, and she picked #22. Congratulations to Deanna!!

You sound like me, deciding something is too much work after i've already started is something I would do and look how neat this turned out....better than with stars at every cornerstone I think and more unique.

Your quilt turned out so nice. I think the border is a perfect contrast to the blocks, it really makes them pop.

Congratulations to the winner of the giveaway!


Have a wonderful night

It looks great! The colors in the blocks remind me of sherberts, cool and sweet.
