Star Surround Quilt Top FINISHED!

 Contrary to Melissa's instructions, I am going to leave this in my To-Be-Quilted pile. It will make #3! Some day, hopefully before this year is out, I will have a quilt frame and a place to indefinitely keep a quilt up on a frame and I will have lots of people over at my house helping me quilt this for the Battle ALS with Flowers event in April. 
Just for fun, here's the block itself. Thanks Melissa for hosting this QAL! I can't wait for the next one.

I'm doing another Quilt-A-Long. Why? I don't know. I don't have time for it. But I do have a wonderful service project concept that I will need quilt tops for.
