Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop for letting me sew along each month! It has been great fun!   As you can see mine is not quite done!  Some of my blocks have been to big and a few to small!  All my own fault I assure you.  All three sections are sewn now and tomorrow I will do another post of the finished quilt top!
