Mon Ami... Hello My Friend!

Did you know that Mon Ami translates from French to: Hello my friend!
How nice is that?
Look what I saw when I woke up this morning!
I just had to scoop up this picture of the new project for this month which is
Sweet Spot!
Sweet Spot is a Schnibble pattern made by Carrie Nelson... and is the Le Petite project for
February. This was on Quilt Taffy's blog and made by Messy Karen.
I just love it!
and better yet, they have kits!
(I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your picture Corrie- I really really love it!)

Here's what you need to get started:

18 medium/dark charm squares for stars (should be 9 pairs of matching squares)
16 medium/dark charm squares for flying geese border
14 medium & dark charm squares for outer border
4 medium or dark charm squares for cornerstones
25 light charm squares for star corners/outer border

Here is my nearly finished version:

I'll have these borders on by tomorrow- promise!
I was using the leftover Quilt Soup fabrics that I had been savoring.
(shhhh... a little confession: I am trying to finish this up while I'm at work... and
I am still trying to put my make-up on).

Since I have now established that I am getting a pretty late start this
 morning and need to grab a cup of tea...
please join me and go get some coffee
and enjoy the parade with me, ok?
But don't forget to go see the other half of the parade at A Quilting Life with Sherri!
