Star Surround Quilt Along FINISH!!

So, I really am still here! I have been so busy with ... well everything! I have made a little time here and there to quilt But my latest I do have to take a moment and share!
I have been following along with the Star Surround Quilt along over at Happy Quilting. I do so Love Melissa's quilts! And when I saw this one I JUST had to!!
I decided if I was going to do this I was gonna go BIG!! I went with the Queen size top! Now I have to decide how in the world I am going to get this bad boy basted so I can quilt it! My kitchen floor is not big enough! LOL maybe I can move the fridge! Oh, the things we do!!
I chose Kona Black for my background because I just LOVE how the black POPS! The fabric (most anyway!) is M'liss from Hancock. I just LOVE how bright and fun her colours are! I have to say I am not really into the whole Asian theme that goes along with it but the bright colours are SO me!!!
I hope you pop over and check out the parade on the 16th!!!
Quilt holder #2 was not tall enough to hold it up! LOL 

Maybe I can get back into the swing of blogging! Till then...
