All of the blocks are completed!

I got all 12 center blocks finished today! This is not the final layout, I don't think. I just put them on the bed to see how they were going to look. I also have the 4 small corner star blocks finished and I have been piecing the piano key border too. It has a small beige strip that goes in the border before and after the piano keys. I have it cut and ready to sew on as soon as I get the center sewn together. I'm tired now so all of this may have to wait until tomorrow after Church. I must say it feels great to have gotten this far on it. I guess I just really needed something with some different fabrics than I had in my stash and in my scrap bins. So glad that I started this kit! I'm going to wait until I get this one finished before I work on anything else but I have several more kits so I may think about working on another one. Better get off the computer...mom just called and she and my sister are on their way out here. She hasn't seen my stairs and a few other things that we did while she was gone to work for 28 days. I checked on the stairs a few hours ago and they are still a little bit "tacky" I wanted to get a coat of polyurethane on them today but no such luck!

Have a great evening!!
