The Braided Star is complete! If I could change one thing, I'd make the dark pink stripe be 1/4" instead of 1/2" inch. But, what's done is done and I'm not ripping just to change that.
I decided, I'm having it quilted at the shop. Too many bumps and lumps for me to want to deal with.
I also just put the final stitches into the binding of the Love Blooms quilt that I'm giving Mom for Mother's day. Plenty of time to spare!! It's even got a label.
