Block I and Top Together

I was able to get the last block together today and added it to the rest. I cut my tree a little too much on the left so let's pretend the wind is blowing in my garden. :) I still have to decide on border fabric. I may get a nice solid and place a 1" border before adding a scrappy wider border with all my leftover fabrics. Looks like a shopping trip is on the agenda soon.
