Long Time Gone -- the Top is Finished!!

All the boxes are checked!
The bits and pieces have been cut up for the final borders!
The background text prints have been folded up and put back on the shelf!
The "project" basket is empty and ready for the next one!!
The piles of strips have become borders.
The borders have been stitched in place.
I found enough of this print for a backing!!
And there it is!! 
Ready to layer and quilt.
I've decided to quilt it with the Baptist fan design and perhaps bind it with black.
These little church dashes are my favorite blocks in the quilt -- so much fun to hide little secrets in the center squares.
Love the plus panel with the star hidden in it -- think I'd like to expand that idea into a larger piece.
The book is on it's way to a new home -- yep, sold it!
And I've started cutting a new project!?!
Be sure to come back on Tuesday, August 1 to see the full reveal of the piece below as part of the Emily Breclaw's Adventures in Hexagons Book Blog Tour going on now! 
I'll have giveaways, too so get you "commenting hat" on and make sure you are NOT a "no-reply" commenter -- you can't win that way!!
Yesterday's stop was at Marti Michell's blog (HERE) and she has a great giveaway so you might want to pop over there for a read and to make a comment!

Enjoy the weekend!
