Quilt Top Assembly for Postcard From Sweden quilt

I am just so pleased tickled with this project!

This weekend I finished getting all of my blocks, then rows sewn together for the
Postcard From Sweden quilt along.

Nope, not every corner seam is perfect, but most of them are.

This will be my baby.
It doesn't have to be perfect.

Isn't she pretty?

I've questioned myself a million times over what I'll use as backing fabric.

I've questioned myself TWO million times over how I'll quilt this!

I've always adored Kaffe Fassett's fabric designs,
so I splurged on a piece I found in the sale section on Craftsy.

I knew it had to be purple cuz that's what makes me happy!

The next step to the link-up will be the finished quilt.
My life is extremely busy right now with the end of school in sight,
so I'm not sure I'll get this done in time.

Keep those fingers crossed!

All Presssed & Trimmed!

I am finally on track and getting linked up to Busy Hands Quilts for the 3rd step
of the Postcard From Sweden quilt along!
I feel like I've been chasing my tail lately!

Above is the pile of trimmings from 144 blocks. Aren't they pretty?
(I must be a nut to think of shards of fabric as "pretty".)
Call me a nut. I don't care.

Here is the "before" trimming photo.

And several hours later....

Here they are all gussied up and waiting their turn to be stitched together.

Oh, what a beauty they will be!!!
