Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Christmas progress

Love it! Love it! Love it!
Can you tell I am excited?
All the pain and time are SOOOOOOOO worth this design. I say pain because I actually developed a blister from pressing all the seams on the backs of the Pointsetta Star blocks.
I showed it to DH and he could not believe the size of the blister. The time is of no importance as I love sewing. You all understand??? Right?
Here is a closeup. I planned (hoped) I'd have enough blocks to make two quilts for my two March birthday grand daughters. And I do have enough! I had even made two sets of clue#3 by accident. So I have another whole 48 Pointsetta Star blocks in red!
I may alternate them in the setting. But first I want to see Bonnie's pieced border option.

This is my favorite one so far. All the other quilts I've seen like this, the color choices cause you to loose the pattern. This one is AMAZING!! I'm sure your granddaughters will love it!!

Wow! What an inspiration. I do love those colors! Great choice! I still have only printed off the patterns, and haven't had the chance to start yet.

Your quilt is amazing!!! How did you know to choose your colors this way! It is perfect!!! I would say I will make mine again---but 100 blocks!!!! Not sure I can honestly say that :-) I am still plugging along, but not at your point yet!
