March One Monthly Goal: Down to the Wire!

Nothing like a late night finish on the last day of the month. But the March One Monthly Goal is finished thirty minutes before the linky party closes.  



The goal for March was to finish Twinkle Stars.  At the beginning of the month Twinkle Stars had arrived back from the quilter, but it needed the label and binding made first.  The binding was made a week before I managed to pin the Scientist in Training down on the message that went on the label. 





The binding was made to match up with the narrow rainbow border in the flimsy.

I turned the last corner and made good time on finishing off the last 30 inches  at about 10:15 central time.  Now Twinkle Stars is all finished. 



Twinkle Stars is a pretty large quilt and I didn't have the time to lay it out and get a good picture. The best I could do was to show all four corners are finished.  I promise a picture of the finished quilt later this week once I have a chance to get it hung up for it's glamour shots.

Linking up with the end of the month linky party over at Elm Street Quilts.

I am sure the later reveal will be worth the wait! Kudos on getting it done. I got my UFO Challenge for March done about 9:30 last night, but the reveal has to wait until Friday.
