Remember this bundle?  I bought it last month while visiting Florida.

I wanted to make the "Crosswalk" quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. so since a jelly roll and just a little yardage would make a 70 x 70 quilt, I went.

Here's the finished quilt.  
The polka dot border made my eyes cross and I kept trying to line them up.....I finally had to just cut them and attach them since I realized early on that it wouldn't work.

Above is the border....LOVE the colors!

I LOVE the red dot that I bought to use as the backing and then picked the red on red for the binding.
I'm seriously in a little shock that I've already cut, assembled and pressed my binding!  That is something I've NEVER done but I like knowing that when I get the quilt back from my favorite quilter Sarah, that all I have to do is sit down and sew it on.

We didn't get the snow that was expected here in NJ this weekend which is awesome but it was mighty cold and rainy!  Today we saw some sun and I'm hoping that as the week goes on that it will warm up just a bit so I can once and for all put the winter jackets in the closet for a few months.

Check back at the end of the week......i'm going to have some exciting news!

Your quilt top really came out nice Peggy and what a great border that dot fabric made for that top. Nice to have all the pieces needed to finish a quilt together....I am usually searching around to pull together. Love this pattern and looks great.
