Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along:  FINISHING

Oh, parting is such sweet sorrow!  I have truly enjoyed sharing this sew-along with all of you and I hope you enjoyed it, too.

This is our final week together.  This week is all about catching up and finishing your quilt!

(The Just Two Charm Pack Quilt is required to participate.  The book is available HERE.)

Follow the "Finishing" sewing instructions in your Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book for the Diagonal Joy Quilt.

We left off last week with our blocks sewn together.

I added a 2 1/2" inner border using my light grey background and then a final 4 1/2" wide border using my accent floral.

We quilted it with My Creative Stitches "Quick and Easy Hearts" using Quilter's Dream Deluxe Cotton Batting.

I love this quilt and it is perfect to snuggle under for Friday movie nights.
