Buggy Barn Quilt Top

My goal this month was to finish up my buggy barn quilt top.  This quilt has that country, primitive feel to it and I love all of the stars in it.  I {heart} star quilts!!  This was a friendship block swap so I was in charge of making all of the tall hearts.  You can see those here and then we swapped blocks last February.  The blocks all sat for a while in the box but it was great to finally put them together.  I'm deciding if I want to add some borders to it or not.  What do you think? Right now it measures 40x46 and it will just be a lap quilt for the couch.

Getting into the swing of things

I wasn't going to set a sewing goal this month...but then I realized that I get more done when I have an actual date set in my mind to finish something.  So, for this month, I'm going to try and get this buggy barn quilt top done.  It's about halfway sewn together and been sitting on my design wall for a few months.  This morning I came across this Finish Along on The Littlest Thistle blog so my goal is to finish up this quilt completely by the first quarter of the end of March.  I think I can do that:)  I couldn't get a complete picture of it since my room is a long narrow rectangle shape but you can kinda get the idea.

I'm linking up here and here:
