First One for 2019

SO I finished my Good Fortune Mystery Quilt!
 It's basically these two blocks, with some borders.
 But it's well over 3000 pieces!
 Here's the top all done
 With the borders all on.
 Then I got some adorable fabric from over at Helio's Stitches & Stuff in Mt Vernon for the back. I find that my spray adhesive doesn't work well in the cold weather, so I couldn't use my garage door for basting. Instead I had to use the kitchen island.
 It's not the best, because I have to do it in sections and it seems like I always have a bump in there!
 But I got it spray basted. I used and 80/20 batting by Hobbs on this one.
 I do like the bright colors-thanks to Bonnie K. Hunter for the colors and the free mystery quilt along.
I'm not sure I'm sold on the scrappy borders either-they were the paper backed string ones. They're kind of stretchy-I kind of struggled to keep them flat.
 If you want the pattern, you have until Feb. 1 to print it out or save it to your computer, because she will remove it from the web page and then you'll have to pay for it. Here's the LINK.
 I spread it out in Bob's room to try to get it in a good picture.
 Ringo approves!
I'm glad this one is done. I really don't know that I enjoy quite so many pieces! Now what to do next?
