Postage Stamp Blocks Together Forever

 The blocks for the Postage Stamp quilt are together along with border number 1.  I know I will also add a green border, but I haven't decided yet if that will be the only one. 
It needs a bunch of ironing of course, before the bordering can begin, so I think I'll just let it hang up outside for a while being admired. The funny shadows are from the pool screen as it filters out the evening sun.
Ryan and I are going to a mother son dance at school tonight.  It has a Star Wars theme.  Kurt is taking the girls to ice skating at the same time and then we can begin the usual weekend round of skating, football, and OM.  I'm sure I'll steal some time with my sewing machine somewhere in all of that.  Almost sure anyway.

This is so cool. Love it! I can't imagine working with all those little pieces. I'm interested to see it all done with the borders. Mother/son dance--what fun. Have a great week-end.
