Gwennie QAL

I got sidetracked on this little quilt in August but finally had the inspiration for the last two clues and finished just in time.
Instead of a whole border of stars, I added a few wool stars in the white space of my first border.  The final border was really fun to do.  I free cut the scallops and hand stitched them to some pieces leftover from another project.  I am really happy that this little quilt was made from my scrap bins!  
Thanks to everyone who helped make this such a fun quilt along.
Linking up today with Lori.
