quilt top

Here's a quick update in the quilting department: I finished a quilt top tonight!  Yeah!  My sewing machine is on the fritz so I haven't been doing as much sewing but yesterday and today my machine was in a good mood :)
I have to say this came together really quickly - it's taken awhile timewise to get to here but I haven't actually spent much time on the quilt - does that make any sense?  Like actual cutting and sewing time haven't taken much time at all.  I love the colors.  I have a trip coming up so quilting it will have to wait a couple weeks.  

So, this pattern is basically the Floral Gatherings quilt that is on the Moda Bakeshop.  I literally saw it one morning and then went right out to the craft house and started it.  I did omit the sashing but otherwise the same.  I don't buy pre-cuts so I just used what is in my stash and I love that.  Each star is 36 inches square so as it is without sashing this is 72X72 and I think I'm just going to leave it like that.
