Default Quilt block rescue

My sister found 2 complete sets of these blocks that someone had started but not finished for $20 and she was kind enough to give me a set - I was thrilled. I immediately did a little more embellishing and sewed the sashing and borders and got it pinned to start quilting tonight. The fabrics are beautiful and each one is so coordinated and just so darn cute. Yes, I am doing the happy dance.

What a find! So glad they found a home. It's really sad that so much time and effort was apparently not appreciated. You've done a beautiful job.
