A QBSA finish for ME!

I am a member of Quilting Block Swaps Australia...
Its so much fun swapping blocks with quilters all over the globe! Australia, New Zealand, Spain, England...USA!

For a couple of years, my block choice was the paper pieced
Lonestar done in random scraps with any dark blue background.  Along the way I received many beautiful blocks and a few undersized blocks, I always thanked each and every lady for their beautiful block addition to my quilt and never complained.  Everyone sews at their own level and learns each and every time that they make a its a win win for me and I just don't see the point of complaining...besides,
the undersized blocks look awesome on the back of my quilt!

I did have a make a few of my own blocks to get the number I wanted and I rounded up a couple quilting buddies to make me a block, my pal Julie who lives local to me and my bestest bloggy BFF Kathy in Ohio...shout out...I love ya girl!!

So without further hesitation, I give you  

Being the scrappy lunatic that I am I pieced fabric crumbs onto strips of scrap paper and then trimmed them up and used them as the sashings......Whoop Whoop!


It was longarmed in a meandering star pattern with 
rainbow thread, just perfect!

See? Dont those "unperfect" blocks look great on the back??

Its magnificent, I love it and its all mine!

Of course a few others want to test it out...




I think its a winner!!
