I'm bad, no really I'm bad! 

Remember these fabrics?  Back here.

Yeah remember this QAL that I joined?

I blogged about it here.

It wasn't until Chelsea opened this giveaway that I got this finished TODAY.

Made in Cherry QAL top DONE

I happily dug this out as I had everything cut out so I just had to stitched away.  I'm super impressed with my piecing skills!  I took the extra time to make sure each block was cut perfectly.  I took the time to iron each block this way or that (thanks mom) so I could nest each seam together.

This is the HUGE size.  I really felt like a kid sewing these blocks together. 

I am SUPER happy I ordered more of the background color. I made the 4 corner square pieces 5" bigger and there is a edge around the whole thing. 

But it's done. . yip yip!

These are the photos that I could get because we're having thunderstorms roll in you know after a day of 90 degree weather.  Ugh is all I can say.  I've been quiet content sitting inside sewing this top together. I'll get better photos once the weather is ready for me to take some photos. :)

I'm happy to see some of my favorite fabrics come together. Finishing quilt tops isn't that scary after all!
