Star Surround Flimsy is done!

           Whew!  One of two of my Star Surround           quilt tops is complete! Yippee Skippee!

                 It all started with this lovely pile of fabrics..

              There were LOTS of flying geese made with
                   Melissa Corrys "no waste" method.
                           You can find that tutorial here:

                      There were also LOTS of 3 1/2" Hsts

Which were made into these beautiful stars...the patriotic ones on top are for my second quilt..can't wait to get that one put together...squeal!!
Then we put all these pieces together and POOF!  This is what I have.....isn't it GORGEOUS??
I haven't even added borders yet and its huge!
Once again, I am so pleased with the outcome of another QAL with Melissa Corry of "Happy Quilting"...her instructions are phenomenal, her attitude is positive, she is incredibly helpful and overall a great hostess and teacher...Thanks Melissa!!
This is one PURDY quilt!
