Top of the Weekend to ya'

This weekend is going nicely for me.  I took one of my vacation days off on Friday and just enjoyed the day.  I did stop in a fabric store and bought a couple of pieces of cloth (sorry no picture of it) 

Today my goal was to get the Layer Cake Quilt along top sashing finished and all joined.  Good news!  I got that done. 
It doesn't appear straight because the breeze kept blowing it while the photo was being made. 
I am planning to add a border that I showed you earlier.  It is this one.
I laid it out and I think it really makes the top  sing.  
I got some good news by email and blog post also. I won a giveaway for some squares to make a watercolor quilt from Sew Fun Quilts. If I remember correctly there are 200 squares that are 2 inches.  I told you all about this giveaway, so don't blame me if you didn't get a chance at it. (((grin)))

Oh yes, My friend, Kelly, is having a giveaway for two books- one per winner so there will be two winners - over at IHAN   I can only win one of them (ha ha) so you still have a chance.  Go give Kelly some love. 

Next up- back to the sewing machine to work on that border. 
Happy Easter y'all.
