Progress at last...

my tts top finished at last
 I have been having all sorts of things going on lately, but can you believe that I finally have the top finished? And it's just how I imagined it all those months ago, so I am pretty happy about that. Next job is to put some of those leftover blue and green fabrics together for the back of the quilt and then I can quilt it! Hang on to your hat, I may not have it finished completely until September 31st! (Yes, I do know that September only has 30 days. I'm just letting you know that I may just have to extend September here at my house in order to meet this deadline.) I do love this quilt and will hopefully get back to work on it in a week or so.
