WIP Wednesday and Dreams

Hi there!  I just wanted to give everyone a quick Thank You for all the lovely comments and support for my Love Squared Quilt! I appreciate all of you and have thoroughly enjoyed reading all your favorite color combinations! You still have time to enter to win the fat quarter bundle! Go here to enter!

I came across this quote the other day and fell in love with it.  I am a dreamer.  I stay up at night and simply dream up ideas.  Lots of ideas.  They are never ending, and usually keep me up at night.   I have had a specific dream for a very long time, and I can now say I am making this dream come true! I am scared, anxious, excited, nervous, thrilled, joyful, and hopeful.  This quote says is quite perfectly.  I have been gathering up all my dreams and finally living the life I love.
Now that I'm off my inspiration soapbox, let's move onto what I have been working on this week. You would think I would be sick of this quilt by now, but the truth is I just fall more in love with this quilt as it comes together.

I finally finished sewing all the blocks together.  I decided to NOT do sashing after all.  I liked the secondary patterns that come out from not doing the sashing.   

I have said this time and again, but I just love these fabrics.  The bright pinks, oranges, yellows, and green just pop against the neutral grey.  It is very scrappy, but I kind of love that about it.  

I just have to add a border on.  I just received the fabric in the mail yesterday and will attach the border this weekend.  Then I can start with the quilting process! 

This quilt has been a long time in the making and I am ready to finish it!

I love that quote! I'm glad I'm not the only one kept up at night by dreams, goals, and possibilities, LOL! If only we didn't have to sleep :-)

I love it! Definitely doesn't need sashing in my humble opinion.
