Smokey Mountain Stars is now bordered and step#2 in CC mystery

I know...the quilt is sideways. But what is a girl to do when she made her design wall she was making smaller quilts????? It did it's duty for years. Now I want to make it the entire wall.
Poor hubby!
Anyway, the borders are on. I shopped my stash again this morning. The final border is a pale pink with darker pink polkadots. I do not even remember what I made from this but it was cut on the lengthwise and was perfect for a border. I prefer lengthwise fabric cuts for borders as there is much less stretch than a widthwise cut. And I did not have to piece it. Guess it was made to be!
And I thought of Bonnie as I was deciding on fabric. "Use it up girl" I heard her whisper in my ear. Yes m'am I say!

And here is my step#2 on the Carolina Christmas Mystery quilt being run by Our Bonnie!

Subee - I just love your colors for the Carodlina Christmas. But more so what amazes me is you are always so organized and in total control of your space. I just love coming to your blog to take a peak at what you are up to. Judy C in NC

I love your Smokey Mountain Stars quilt. I love the colors and want to try that pattern of Bonnie's soon (although I really should finish the Sisters Choice, Boxey Stars, and now Carolina Christmas first!).

I didn't realize you live in New Haven; I grew up in Leo and had friends in New Haven -- a life time ago!

I love your pink Smokey Mountain Stars! I've been wanting to make that pattern for a long time but had not thought of doing it controlled scrappy. But now, maybe I will.
