awesomesauce? Love the word! But love the quilt even more! I love the print stars popping out from the solid squares. And that red and white border fabric is fabulous...Fandango really is awesome!

You're a good secret keeper...don't think I could keep something that fabulous under wraps for so long!

Somehow I just came across this - sometimes I'm a late bloomer. I LOVE THIS QUILT. I'm going to get the book just so I can make this one.

Also, I hope your husband is healing well after his surgery.
