Charmed Prints Quilt Along FINISHED!!!!

My Charmed Prints Quilt Along Quilt is Finished! Even though I came down with the flu and barely got off the couch I got it done! I BIG BIG BIG thanks goes to my mom who really helped out by sandwiching and pinning the quilt for me. I felt terrible and thanks to her I was able to use what little time I wasn't on the couch quilting instead of trying to mess with saftey pins. She is such a wonderful person!

Without further ado here it is!

I decided to make a pieced border to keep with the Pampered Pooch theme. What dogs don't love bones? Since I used this fabric line to stash bust some charm packs and a jelly roll I had, I also pieced the back.

It was alot of fun to put together and all the little pieced squares turned out super cute!!!

Charmed Prints Quilt Along Quilt Top

I am almost done with my Pampered Pooch Quilt for the Charmed Prints Quilt Along! I still need to add the border, but I have gotten creative and decided to piece my border and its taking longer than I thought. 

Here is the main part of the quilt top:

My hope is to have the border done and on by Friday so I can spend the weekend quilting and binding it! The deadline to post our completed quilt on Flickr to be eligible for the QAL giveaway is December 20th, which is next Tuesday, so I want to be done this weekend! (Can you believe how close we are to Christmas?!?!)

I am really happy with how well the black and red squares balanced out with the more pastel colors. I was worried they would be an eyesore or look really out of place, but it came together really nice. I think my favorite pieced feature block has to be the black and red pinwheel square on the bottom row. It really helped tie everything together! Yay!!
